Hi Lou

Malting Cottages (I believe the parish is Hadstock Essex - you probably saw in the index that no parish is mentioned - I have the transcript which is the same, so I imagine that it's been left off deliberately as it's Essex- most of the residents are born Hadstock. It's just over the county boundary)
Robert Martin head marr 29 messenger born Swaffam Cambs
Eliza Martin wife 28  b Chelsea Middlesex
Robert Martin son 8 b Swaffam
Edward Martin son 6 b Horseheath Cambs
Sarah Martin dau 4 b Swaffam
Ruben Martin son 4mths b Hadstock Essex
William Scott visitor unmarr 82 pauper b Swaffam

regards

David

Hi David

This is wonderful, thank you.  Reuben was found for me on the 51 Essex index but I think Hadstock was mentioned but as part of Cambridgeshire.

This solves another huge mystery in who he belongs to.  He is with my 4xgrandparents aged 10 in 1861 as Grandson.  Ends up in Brixton Prison after that for the 1871!

Thanks again

Hi Lou

I actually found him in the index on the Cambs FHS site! It's well worth checking out if you are researching Cambs names in the first half of the 1800s.
