Looking for Hands of Leicestershire
Daniel Hands born about 1788 according to a copy of a letter writen by his wife, may have been born in Chilvern Coton in Warwickshire.
Daniel was a Frame Work Knitter and had his own little business in Carven St. Leicester, where the family remaind for a long time after Daniel died in 1838 aged 50.
Ann his wife carried on the business till sometime between 1851 and 1855 when she died. Then William and Daniel together or seperarately carried on untill some time after1880 when I loose all trace of them.
Joseph the youngest son is my grandfather and came to Australia in 1856
