Dear JoGo, Hi. If you post a message at the Rootschat website, on the England / Middlesex / Lookup Requests Board,-


You should be able to find out more information on the children born in England. A good snapshot in general is Census Lookups from 1841 through to 1881.

Also try Ancestry.co.uk FREE England and Wales BMD Indexes 1837-1983.


For the children born in NZ, there may be some records here on them:-


Children born in Melbourne, Aust:-

Try posting a message at the rootschat board, Emigrants to Australia, asking someone to do a BDM Index lookup on any children born to the couple.

Regards, Allycat, QLD, Australia.
