I've now moved on to the son of John Postlethwaite.  Edwin John Postlethwaite.  He was born in1851 in Clerkenwell, London.  Parents John and Mary Ann.  In 1861 he is living with his father and Elizabeth (Page).  Records show he was in the Royal Navy but unfortunately deserted in 1872.  I cannot find his whereabouts after this date.  Help would be appreciated.

A new thread has been started on this enquiry about Edwin here,
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=841305.msg7075685#msg7075685

so it's perhaps better if any replies to it are posted there?

I was extremely surprised that you received a result for the surname. as my search just for the surname with that exact spelling, then a minor change to the spelling,  received no results whatsoever !!

Rena thatís strange, because I did the same search as John and got the same result. I was able to download and view the document straight away.

Thanks John
Unfortunately, I can't download it because, although I've registered, I'm still waiting for an email verification from National Archives >:(

I think you're right.

I can't yet see Mary Ann as either Postlethwaite or Palmer in 1861 or 1871. But at least now you know that she was still alive in 1866 so clearly John wasn't married to Elizabeth.
