View Full Version : French Family in Tring

26-03-2006, 8:48 AM

I am an Australian researching a surname in my family: FRENCH
I have an ancestor named Benjamin French who emigrated to Australia sometime before 1857 as a miner. Through various birth certs, marriage certs, and death certs I have been able to find that he was born in Tring, Hertfordshire, though this is sometimes listed as Buckinghamshire. His parents have always been listed as unknown.
I have found a FRENCH family listed in the 1851 Census as being born in Tring and then moving to Wingrave Buckinghamshire, although Benjamin was not listed with this family.
I have been unable to locate Benjamin, he was born in the early 1830s. I have not been able to view an 1841 census.

I would appreciate any help on this one!
