Hi Rosie,

You're right. Those signatures look very similar.

I've not been able to find Joseph or James on any census records :-(

He was a Saddler when he married which tied in with the census entries posted above for him and Sarah.  They give his place of birth as Trinidad, West Indies

Thanks Rosie and Chempat. I've added those census and electoral register records to my tree.

I guess DNA will be my only means of finding out about Joseph and hopefully those that came before him :-)
