View Full Version : 1851 lookup for William Place aged at least 40
31-10-2007, 9:19 PM
William Place (junior) was born 1829 and his father was also called William. On William (junior's) marriage certificate in 1849 William (senior) is listed as occupation Grocer. The 1841 showed a possible candidate for William (junior) and a possible one for William (senior) although this one was a farmer not a grocer. If some kind soul can look for a William Place aged at least 40 and probably a grocer, It could help fill in on this elusive family. Hopefully it may yield a possible mother to William junior.

It looks like according to the 1841 census, the William who married Elizabeth from Lakenheath was the farmer.

I see young William is with a grocer and family in 1841 in Bury called Watson.
Found this marriage on the index.
25th January, 1824 - Bury St. Edmunds, St. Mary

So foolish of me.. I forgot to say Bury St Edmunds. Susan Place marying a Watson is interesting as young William seems to have been a servant at a Watson Household in 1841.
I had seen the William Place Sarah Paine marriage and tended to favour that over the William Place marriage to Elizabeth Rolf. Are there any other details about William and or Sarah, particularly William's occupation?
There seems to be some contacts with Tostock so this might be an alternative to B. St. E. for the William senior family.
Thanks for the info so far, as every one knows all scraps are useful in building up the picture.

It looks like there was a Daughter Susan, born or baptised to William and Sarah according to the IGI 5th Oct 1823 as well as a Rose Anna 3rd Jun 1827 and William Rushbrooke 19 Apr 1829. All of these are extracted from the records apparently rather than sent in by a member of the LDS so can one hope they are accurate? 1829 fits well with my Williams calculated birth year.

Is Boyds available on the web? It seems to be a very good resource.
