Thank you so much Jan. That has helped me work out who the Frederick I have is, He was Elijah's brother James's son Frederick b1869-died 1953. He was married to a Lizzie Jane Morris in 1891.
James b1838 married Elizabeth Vincent 1859 and died in 1923, and another of their sons James Vincent Plucknett came out to Australia and had a Coach building business in Chermside Brisbane.
Now that I know it was not Frederick's brother but his nephew it all falls into place.

Thank you Jan. With Plucknett such an unusual name, I guess they all
are connected with the same family.

I believe the name came from Brittany and is derived from a village north of Rennes, and still named Plugeneauc today. Plu or Plou stands for parish or village in the Breton language which is of course Celtic. The late Donald Plucknett from Annandale America did a lot of research on the family, he found the family came to England during or just after the Norman Conquest in 1066, and the first he could find was a Hugh de Plugenet who was given Headington Manor in Oxford in either 1141 or1142 for his lifetime by Empress Maud, who was contending for the crown with her cousin Stephen for the crown following the death of her father King Henry the first.

Hi Jan, I have now found that James and Ann Sheane Hobbs had at least seven children. I have Mary Ann, Eli, Isabella, Eli Israel,Elinor and now Clarissa. It is confusing as the same names keep being used each generation.
