« on: Sunday 06 March 05 16:31 GMT (UK) »
Hello, If anyone can help I am looking for information on the Rolfe family in Bedfordshire, 1851.

I am looking for:

James Rolfe, aged 22 (approx), born Totternhoe/Eaton Bray
Ann Rolfe, aged 22 (approx), born Totternhoe/Eaton Bray
William Rolfe, aged 1 (approx), born Totternhoe
Joseph Rolfe, aged 46 (approx), born Northcliffe/Eaton Bray
Charlotte Rolfe, aged 46 (approx), born Edlesborough
Richard Rolfe, aged 18 (approx), born Eaton Bray
Mary Ann Rolfe, aged 15 (approx), born Eaton Bray
William Rolfe, aged 12 (approx)

They should all be living in Eaton Bray. I would appreciate any information,

Lucia

Couldn't see any Rolfes at all in Eaton Bray, so I checked Totternhoe which, given the birth of William aged 1 in Totternhoe, was probably more likely anyway:

Lucia,
I hope your still on this site as your last chat was 6 years ago!

Your looking for the Rolfes of Eaton Bray.

That's my family and I could possibly help
