 :) Hi
I am trying to locate a birth record for my great great grandfather, John William or John Joseph Dixon, born circa 1830-32 at Highgate, Middlesex, England. I'll attach his death record which gives his parents as John William Dixon and Charlotte Marriage, place of birth as Highgate. He emigrated to Australia (am not sure of year of immigration). The marriage of John Dixon to Charlotte Marriage took place on 26 September 1830 in London. We can not find a birth record for a son, John. There is another marriage for a John William Dixon to an Elizabeth Hulbert, on 13 May 1832 in London, which may be a second marriage for J W Dixon senior? Any help with this would be appreciated. Apparently there are no christening records for this time. Deb

Oh,  how awesome Bookbox! Thank you, thank you so much. This is him!!!! You are an amazing researcher & your help is appreciated. This will help identify also, possible relatives who may have emigrated. This has smashed through our brick wall.  :D Deb from Daintree, Australia
