In the 1841 Census it looks as if Harriet has died as his wife is now Susan I have no conformation as yet of their marriage so not sure which are their children. Possibly from Henry downwards
This is Frank Albion?s Story

Sometime between 1851 and 1861 he goes to Australia and meets Maria Ann Horwood, she was born in 1843 in Middlesex, England and leaves with her family in 1857 and sails to Melbourne
Australia. Frank and Maria Marry in Victoria around 1861 and have 4 children there. Harriet Maria 1862, Frank Albion 1864 ?1865, Henry John Hall 26 January 1866 and Eleanor 1868.
Soon after they return to Durham England and go on to have Minnie 1870 and Florence Ada 1873.
Sadly both Frank and Maria died in 1877 and the two younger children were put into an orphanage in Ashley Down Gloucestershire.
Minnie later Marries William Arnold Hayes and goes to Canada.
Florence Ada who was a nurse, leaves on the ship Scotian 7th September 1920 to Montreal Canada
