    Yes, thank you. I have this and you are correct that it is the family. I hadn't, however, 'twigged' that Elizabeth Brunning was still alive in 1851 and beyond so back to the drawing board on that...

    Yes, I take your point it is a common name and the 1841 census is not very helpful - or accurate in many cases. It could just be a coincidence.
