Hi I am the grand daughter of minnie king who is listed in your trail, daughter of alfred william (also sometimes just listed as william king) of brompton ralph. The information I knew is that alfred williams father was a cabinet maker who went to London, and died. His wife brought alfred william back to brompton ralph and left him with his grandmother, who brought him up. (his mother went back to her family in south wales). I asked my father if alfred willliams father didnt die, but went to Australia (alot of farming family offspring went to australia at that time, because there was no living at home), but he seemed convinced that he had died. Minnie king had told my father that in bromptom ralph there were 2 families of kings, but that they werent related to each other. This may be where some of the confusion is.

Hi Rachel Louise,

The plot thickens. Perhaps Alfred William's father was Thomas as he is the only male child of James & Patience who hasn't been "tracked' at this stage. I tried to find a death for Thomas is London but it was like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Hi Rachel Louise,
Lovely to hear from you, I don't suppose there is a family member that has Alfred Williams birth or death cert? I am still tackiling Thomas as well.
regards Vicki, a long lost & very distant cousin

Hi Vicki and Lyn
My father might have some papers, I dont think that there is a either a birth or death certificate, I am going to visit him at the beginning of June, so could look through the information he has then. I probably will be able to find out the name of Alfred Williams father.

Rachel, cross fingers that some info. is discovered. Have a good visit in the mean time I will keep on chugging.
Interesting Note:  Have stumbled on some VERY confusing info, which led me down a day of puzzling research.  We have 2 ..Alfred W KING's born 1862.  London.  In 1871, 1 was with Patience White (KING) (grandmother) our definate line... the other b. HOXTON, LONDON 1862, was in Llandaff, Glamorgan, Wales, with a Bernard Branfill (Patience had a nephew ..Bernard ;D) & mother..Martha KING ???m. entry for them lists his father as Richard, which is correct. its worth jumping to both 1871 census's & looking just for a smile. All the POB's & ages match.  HOWEVER Alfred cannot be in 2 places at once. I am assuming the Census was taken on the same night in the UK.
In 1881 a Bernard Branfill  was living with them in England. CONCLUSION:None have no idea which Bernard is the right nephew. . ;D
Branfill was mispelt a lot of the time. The Wiveliscombe parish entries have BRANFILL, BRANFIELD.
keep in touch Vicki.

Hi
Alfred William had a brother (My father has letters from him to Alfred William) I cant remember what his name was but will find when I visit in June. His mother took the brother back to South wales, when the father died, but took Alfred William to his grandmothers in Somerset and left him there, and the grandmother brought him up. I am wondering if Alfred william was listed on 2 cencuses because his mother didnt want to admit she wasnt looking after him.

The brother went away to sea, presumably was a sailor. He wrote letters back to Alfred William from various places around the world. He kept saying that he had been very bad (ie brother had been bad) but he never said what it was that was bad. The letters ended, so we guessed that he died on one of these trips.

Rachel,
On the 1871 Wales Census, there was a brother Robert W KING also born in 1854 Hoxton, LONDON. I am wondering the same thing as you. I have found a Robert W KING b. 1858 Hoxton on 1881,1891,1901 census's, (different occupations & not a sailor) but have not found him on the most significant one... 1861  :( Not working today so will tackle the mystery some more. Vicki.

All the ones who went to Austrlia, went separately, and werent in too much contact out there.

Previous generation
Patience bramfill (1806-1893) married James King (died 1848) then married Richard white (died 1881)
Bertrand Bramfill was brother of patience lived with her towards end of his life.

hope this helps. I was going to attach a photo of patience but couldnt work out how to do it.
