Children from William James to Henry all born Boconnoc

it does say 8 children born 8 alive but as you can see there is only 7 listed I wonder where the other child is?

You should be able to find the GRO references for the children on the BMD site, it's free to search.


There are two William James Keast registered in Liskeard for 1899 one in Apr/May/Jun Quarter & one in Jul/Aug/Sep Quarter

The marriage reference for James Keast & Edith Maud Harris is also there, March 1897 Liskeard.

I found this in the OPC Cornwall for Edith
