Note on Husband: James RICHARDS - shared note

Trees Researched: - David Briggs Death Certificate: - aged 62, DoB 1798 but is this more or less likely to be correct - I am inclined to think the 1841 and subsequent Census, when he was alive is more likely to be accurate.

Note on Wife: Maria UPTON - shared note

Trees Researched: - David Briggs 1841 Census: Aged 25 Dob 1816 1851 Census: Aged 34, DoB 1817 1861 Census: aged 49, Dob 1812 1861 Census: Noted as Widow

Note on Child 1: John RICHARDS - shared note

We must question the 1851 Census information which says John is the son of James Richards & a Lodger. John is aged 32 and James is only 41 !! Perhaps John is only 22 at this time !
