Lookup request Edward Graves/Greaves
« on: Wednesday 21 October 20 15:56 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Can I have a lookup request for Edward Graves/Greaves please?

born between 1810-1830 in Chichester (he kept changing his age but he apparently first went to sea in 1831)

father supposedly also Edward from marriage certificate.

Thanks :)


He later moved to Liverpool and married Elizabeth Horsfall Crowther. Cannot locate him on 41/51/61 censuses but he may have been at sea.

Only Graves/Greaves I can find in Chichester is a 'Leonora Greaves' who died in 1852 and was originally from the Channel Islands according to the census.
