Thank you Tim and Karen, I think it is feasible that the James Friend Antorn registered in Jan 1870 could have been reregistered after Pamela and James married and she then called him William John. She did have a William born in 1872 in Peter Tavy seems strange to call two sons William albeit James/John was known as John I made a note of the bapt in Peter Tavy when I looked before and found John Apl 11th 1872 F. James Miner M. Pamela so this would be the James Friend Antorn born in Tavy in 1870 I didn't find a William but there was a William James Friend bapt 11th April 1872 mother Maria. I think that Karen when you found William Henry registered with mothers name of Harris this is good as Pamela also registered her daughter Elizabeth with maiden name of Harris but registered her daughter Florence with maiden name of Antorn I guess because her mum Jane Ann married John Harris when Pamela was only 6 so sometimes she was Antorn and sometimes Harris. Getting back to finding a death of John/James I did find a James Friend buried in Tavistock 20.1.1889 but wouldn't he have been John Friend or William not sure. Also a William James Friend age 42 living in Whitchurch in 1911. A William James Friend marr in Jan qtr 1890 in Tavistock. My John/James Friend Antorn could well have moved away before 1891 but I just cant find him still think he died but no proof. Also looked at school records but didn't find John found his younger siblings though. Thanks again for your help everything much appreciated. Sue
