Well found John. You can't blame them for that transcription, the writing is dreadful.

I'd hoped Broughton would be easy to spot but he's listed as Bright. They don't make it easy.

I've been struggling to find them in 1851.  Where would you expect them to be?

Was Daniel the son of Robert (an excise officer) and Sarah baptised 2nd March 1806 at St Dunstan and All Saints, Stepney?

added none of the children on the 1841 census was called Robert.

They married by banns and were both of 'this parish'.

St Lawrence is in Ramsgate, not an obvious choice of town to move to.

Do you know who the witnesses, William & Sarah Palmer were?

A good scan.  Definitely no 'p'.

Could be Lanesosine/Lanesosire.

Perhaps just a misheard/spelt Lancashire  ???

Freereg has their births as 1944

I think Birchfield was the Sundridge Workhouse.  In 1948 it became Sundridge Institution for Mental patients.

My Gt Grandmother always said there was room for one more - the illegitimate son of her daughter, the grandchildren from a first marriage not wanted by a second husband etc.

There were either taken in by family or went to the workhouse or other institution.
