Thanks an65

Yes i have found him ,he is the one you mentioned, son of charles gray. Charles is the son of cadilla gray who died aged 91 in 1824, it seems she was the sister of thomas and george,  you  wouldnt know who their parents were.

So Cadilla Grey was born about 1733? She would have been 34-ish at the time of Charles' birth?

In the IGI (Familysearch) there is this baptism around the time of Charles Grey's birth:
George Grey
Christening:   25 March 1767   ASHWELL, HERTFORD, ENGLAND   
Father:   Thomas Grey
Mother:   Elizabeth

Is this where the assumption that Thomas Grey married to Elizabeth is the brother of Cadilla Grey that produced a base born son called Charles Grey?

Charles Grey
Christening:   26 December 1765   ASHWELL, HERTFORD, ENGLAND   
Mother:   Cadilla Grey.

Amended I see you have this, When Thomas Grey and Elizabeth were sent to Horningsea parish, they must have had some evidence of some type or baptism for Thomas or Elizabeth, previous residence or a marriage for the poor law people to do this.

Hi all Gray folk,

I am an Australian descendant looking for information on Henry Gray (b c1804) and children Sarah/Sally (b 1832), Leighton (b 1834), Drusilla (b 1836), Felix (b 1839) and Shadrach (b 1841), who emigrated to South Australia on the Osceola in 1851. I believe Henry is part of the same Gray family discussed in this thread - can anyone confirm?
Also, I'm looking to connect with other Australian descendants of Henry Gray in the hope of exchanging pictures/information on the family after their arrival in Adelaide. Please let me know if you can help.
