Thank you so much! Where did you find the marriage info, if I may ask?
If in Kent this ties up with the 1851 census where he is in Elham in Kent as a teacher of languages, which is what I think your clip shows.
He says born in Holland though.

I have the UK naturalisation papers (1854) for Joseph Seeley who was born in Denmark in 1824.

Hi lindyven

Where did you find the info that he was from Denmark?

It would have helped to have linked to this post to save us wasting time looking for what you already have  ::)  Your post says he only had the one child

I downloaded his naturalisation papers from National Archives. States born in Denmark 1824, lived in England 15 years, with wife and (at that time, 1854), one child, living in Holywell St as on daughter Malvina's baptism cert.

Apologies Rosie. I should have linked as you say.

Yes, very contradictory person. Also bankrupt and living in France c. 1863 and possibly bigamous marriage!
