After several previous attempts to trace the current generation of this family I am extremely pleased to say that the bible is now on it's way to Australia to the 2 x great granddaughter of the original recipient, Edward James 1827 - 1891.  The bible was dedicated to Edward in 1838 by his mother Sarah (Gould) & is inscribed with his & his wife’s date of birth, their marriage date & the birth of their 2 children.  One daughter married, lived in the Reading area and had one daughter who never married or had children.  The other married & emigrated to Australia.  Explains why it was so difficult to track them down!
