\\
Sarah Lee married 60 Gipsy Travelling Bedfordshire
Rachel Hurn Wid. 54 Gipsy Travelling Luton Hunts (nee Lee, widow of Edward "Naibai" with her son by him -)
Samuel Hurn son 21 Tinker and Brazier Windham Nfk
\\
John Hurn Wid 50 Tinker and Brazier Holbeach, Lin (AKA Alfred)
Everhilda Hurn daughter 20 Net & Peg Mkr Petingham Yk
Jack Hurn 19 son Tinker & Brazier near Lincoln
Moses Hurn son 14 Tinker & Brazier Howden Lin

Is it the same Roads of May? I think it probably is..... It would make sense for her to live with Auntie Eliza after her mothers death, and her father clearly had a large family to cater for already, as is shown above.

Concerning Rhoda Herne amd Roads of May " Thorpe "
In the 1861 census Rhoda Herne is recorded as the niece of James Thorpe/ Elizabeth Thorpe nee Buttress.
In the 1871 census again Roads of May is recorded as the niece of James and Elizabeth.
Who are the parents of Rhoda / Roads of May, for if the census record is to be believed , than the mother has to be the sister of James, or possibly the sister of Elizabeth, but

I have no record of any siblings of James Thorpe bn c 1818, I do have James bn 1818 to John Thorpe and Silvester Gray.

Hello Cindy

I was born into a travelling fair family and my aunt married Ronnie Harris.  If you look at www.fairground-heritage.org.uk/forum the fairground families link has loads of information that you may find helpful, there is even a family tree where the Harris family link to the Freeman-Biddall family.  This is the website that the information from `thegalloper' site was re-located to when that site collapsed.  The site is run by the Fairground Heritage Trust and there is a lot of circus and other entertainer info there.

I hope this helps.

Rhoda/Roads of May was daughter of Alfred Hearn (aka John in the 61 Census) and his wife Rebecca "Becky" Buttress - sister of Elizabeth.
