Brooks family of Attleborough
« on: Tuesday 29 August 17 16:41 BST (UK) »
I think maybe I have finally reached my limit of ....... patience...

this week :)  I am attempting to continue with my York descendants...    ??? ::) :
So I have :

Ann/Hannah born 1832 Shenton, married to Thomas Brooks.

they had 9 children... :)
Well eventually with help on here managed to deal with the eldest Hannah born 1853.
So I am extremely grateful for that.. bless you :) 

So today had hoped to sort more.

Well 5 mins into it and the census returns seem to be telling fibs.. or the something?!

William Brooks born:  1853 Shenton / or Sutton Cheney.  = 1861 and 1871.
Then the 1881
is crazy -- The page that is shown as having him on.. he isn't? and then the next page IS his parents.  So I go a few pages forward and backwards..--- nope.. so I attempt to follow his son:
and view others on page.

And he seems to be the stepson of the Kendall family, but also none of them seem to be listed.

IS IT ME... ??

have I (and don't be afraid to tell me :) :) ) finally lost the plot.

OK not really REALLY asking for help. Just sharing an experience - more than anything. 
So
EXCUSE The totally terrible punctuation ... .... ... , ? (no shouting at me.. I am going through a delicate phase of my life)
  please xxxx
