Never mind John, I'm sure we've all done that in the past.  The excitement of following the trail  ;D

Possibly Arthur made the news 21.7.1880, Stratford Times & South Essex Gazette for stealing monies, sentenced six weeks hard labour.

Interesting snippet John but I think it may be referring to the Arthur that I posted on Reply#16.  He is Colchester born and living there in 1891.

Or he may be a different chap altogether with a different age.  His occupation is given as a carter in the employ of Mr. H. Digby of Cannock Mill.

Possibly not the Arthur in Reply#16 as his daughter was born in 1874 and he is an engine driver.

Just a note to say that I have just now come across the 1871 census for Arthur, but under the mis-spelt surname of Seaburn.  In that census, he is (again) a Clerk, born in Ipswich and married to Laura Lavinia.  Their only child, Grace, is cited as aged 0.

All in all, the concensus of advice and findings offered from each of you suggests that the two Arthurs are one and the same, something I should have accepted from the beginning perhaps.  That in mind, and in the knowledge that I have not been able to find an Islington Seaborn/Seaborne family capable of supporting my Arthur's claims, I'm going to bite the bullet and commit him to my tree as being born in Ipswich (along with Laura Lavinia and all of the poor children who suffered after her premature demise). 

I'm sure you've each helped others in the past and are used to this sort of exchange.  But I would like to reinforce my sincere thanks again for the amount of effort on your respective parts and the willingness in which it was offered.  I wish you well with your own research.

Glad we could all be of some help.

You were quite right to question the birth place and not just accept it as fact.

Any other queries you may have in the future please do post again  :)

It's been an interesting post. One final snippet, there is an obituary for Laura Lavinia in newspaper 1885.
