Yes Alexander is William's brother. I believe I have his parents although not verified but Esther is a bit of a mystery.



Alexander Campbell would be Estherís brother, surely, rather than Williamís?

This may be him with their mother in the hamlet of Durrants, Havant, in 1841:

The Esther Campbell of the 1835 Waterloo marriage was of the parish of St Leonardís Shoreditch - doesnít look an obvious match.

It was also by licence which might be unlikely if they were itinerant workers.

I see that the son ďAronĒ Lambert, aged 14 in 1871, was a nephew in the household of Alexander Campbell, a 45 yr old dealer in china and glass born in Chichester.

Living in Croydon in 1871: RG10/845/80/33.

OK yes I see "Campbell"

She may in fact have been born in Portsea (and baptised in Chichester) - or she may have mistakenly thought she was born in Portsea if the family had connections to both places (her mother died there).

Or it may have been her husband who completed that 1861 census return and was mistaken.
