Re: Was not born and did not die!
Many thanks everyone. No he appears in the 1871 census and served his sentence in Shepton Mallet prison. So good try! If he then joined up and was killed overseas in the army, would he still have death certificate? Also there are four Torquay churches whose registers have not been transcribed? Note he was a stonemason, so could have travelled, but the family were always in and out of the poorhouse, so no money around. I have a findmypast membership.
