Has anyone lost a George or Joseph Simpson born in 1804 & 1809

George Simpson (born c1804) was a bricklayer and married Elizabeth Bird at St Marys, Lambeth on Christmas Eve 1835.

George & Elizabeth had five children; Sophia, Elizabeth, Margaret, Harriet and George junior. Their first child was born in Hampshire Street Lambeth, their second in Smith Street Camberwell New Road and the others at St Marks Road, Kennington.

George senior died of TB at St Marks Road, Kennington in 1850 and is buried at St Marks, Kennington.

Joseph Simpson (born c1809) was a bricklayer and married Diana Bird (Elizabeth Birds sister) and the witnesses to their wedding were Sophia and George Simpson.

Joseph & Diana had five children; William, Abraham, Dinah, Joseph and Richard, three are known to have died in infancy. Their first four children were baptised at St Marks Kennington and the last at St Matthew, Brixton.
