Thank you Sally appreciate all the help and thoughts I have been receiving. When I went on FMP I put in all variations of Antorn and went through ones that I thought were possible and looked at original records where they showed. Never looked at the one you found. There are several Antorn variations in Plymouth back in the 1700/1800 but I couldn't find connections. The Elizabeth Hall Antorn spelt Antrim bapt in St Budeaux 1788 I tried every way to find her in the census without success. As far as I found my John and this Elizabeth were the only surviving siblings of William and Jenny. I thought a William had survived too but now not sure. I tried putting in Hall too many nothing looked probable. The William marr to Jenny possibly had a brother John who survived but cant find him. This William and Johns father William married Thomazen Clarke in Bere Ferrers in 1738 so this is the William who I am trying to find a bapt for. I found in 1851 William Auton age 19 a carpenter born in Tamerton a lodger living St Andrew Plymouth. A Mary Ann Antrem bapt 1806 Stoke Damerell F. Charles M. Mary Ann A Robert Charles Anton marr 1857 Plymouth There is a Jane Antram buried St Andrew 1756 and a name Anuis? Antram Aulram? buried 1633 St Andrew. Sorry just goes on and I cant get connections but like Chris said not all records on line and I really need to visit Exeter again but when I get there I don't know where to start. I have been to 3 record offices but came away with loads of names but not much more than I already have. Think I need some lessons on how to search. Thanks again. Sue
