    On FreeBMD there are two death registrations in the December 1/4 for an Edward Love. One is in the registration district of Midhurst age 94 vol 2b page 237. The other is in the registration district of Middlesbro' vol 9d page 237, again age 94.
    However Middlesbro' is in italics and this is what FreeBMD say about this entry
    "The page number is not within the range expected for the district. Note that there a number of possible reasons for this, including an error in the district, the page, the volume, the date or the type of entry."
    I looked at the original typed image for the Middlesbro' entry and it quite clearly says Midhurst vol 2b page 237. How itcame to be transcribed as Middlesbro' I don't know but it makes more sense that Edward would have died in the area in which he had lived all his life, not in Yorkshire.

    Thanks for your quick reply. I think you are right about Edward Love's place of death being Midhurst. I wondered about the Yorkshire site when I first came across it. It just didn't make sense. I need to study and better understand the geography of England. The age 94 is different than what I have though.

    " Their Son,(my Great-Great-Grandfather) Edward b:1814 at West Harting, Sussex, England, d:1868 m: Lucy Pay."

    Where did you find he died in 1868 as
    I have found Edward and Lucy on the census 1851, 1861 and 1871 in Harting, Sussex, England.

    They also have a son Edward born abt 1842 Harting, Sussex, England. 1851 and 1861 census

    Hi, I can't figure out where the 1868 death date came from. You are correct he does show in the 1872 census with Lucy. Sorry, My error.

    Thanks for the reply. I agree with your dates except maybe the baptism of Robert, 7 sep1749. Could this have been a late Baptism for Robert that was born abt 1725? Jim

    Hi Peanut, This could very well be my Robert. I had estimated his birth about 1725. Location is correct. I did have his father as Robert B; abt 1690 but nothing else. Thanks for your response. Jim

    2 Robert Love's born with father Robert Love, one in 1749, WANBOROUGH, WILTSHIRE, ENGLAND and one in 1759, WANBOROUGH, WILTSHIRE, ENGLAND.

    Family Search has no mothers names for them.

    Others I have found in WANBOROUGH, WILTSHIRE, ENGLAND are

    John (suspect as born before Marriage) abt 1747
    Edward abt 1760 death abt 1849
    Another Edward abt 1761 death abt 1764
    Mary abt 1764
    Henry abt 1768 death abt 1771
    Thomas death 1787

    Possible 2 Family's both with father Robert Love in WANBOROUGH, WILTSHIRE, ENGLAND
    and these 2 are his children
    John 1747
    Robert 1749
