If you could post the approximate year of birth for Leonard or Henry or the marriage of Henry and Mary it would be much easier to find the information for you.

I'll check back for dates.

Me Again,

I've read your other posts and got a rough idea of dates. I'll do some research and get back to you.

There are a number of children for Richard Carter and Rebecca ???.
You can find them on: https://familysearch.org/search

Just put in Richard carter and spouse Rebecca no date just Dorset. You have to decide which are yours by cross checking with the census. The problen is i could not find a marriage for a Richard and Rebecca and none of the baptisms shoe a maiden name.

This information is fantastic because it confirms something I found a few years ago about Mary being the daughter of Nicholas Collins - I really appreciate your help and will carry on with the search. Brenda
