Very interesting trip to subject’s birthplace. Found out that he was only there two years and then the family moved to somewhere else. Some parts of the area have changed very little in the last 180 years. Now need a trip to the next place they lived!
It was amazing to see an original Register of births from 1840s and the census from 1851. The local archive didn’t yield as much information as I and hoped but the local library was more successful. The local museum had a story of the place gallery which gave me an insight to how it would have looked when the subject was there.
