When I was looking last night, before knowing motherís name, Iím sure there was a James born right time right place with mothers name Findler.

Was it this one?

Swings back again!
Knutton James eliminated!
RHEAD, JAMES       
Mother's Maiden Surname: BRAYFORD  (as per siblings)
GRO Reference: 1840  D Quarter in WOLSTANTON AND BURSLEM UNION  Volume 17  Page 280

It does look worthwhile investigating the James Read registration in Leek, March 1840. As flagged up by Millie! :)

Sorry to hear that. It looked promising for a while!
Very frustrating for you, I know.

hi Rosinish. i found that about a couple of years ago and got a certificate. it has an entry described 'Baby Reade' but with a different set of parents .I know he and I are related because we have a DNA match

Have you found then who 'Baby Reade' was through census' with his named parents?
