Descendants of Francis and Esther Eves Halsted née Coles

Recent correspondence with Lorraine Wood, in Canada, has meant that one of Francis's children John Henry Halsted  has now been correctly relocated to him rather than his sister Martha.

The error occured because Esther Eves Halsted died shortly after the 1841 census leaving Francis with three young children. In fact in the 1841 census John Henry was already living with his Uncle Charles Coles Halsted - John stayed with his uncle until he died in 1866 and was joined from the 1851 census onwards by his sister Esther Halsted.

This family form part of the Sussex Chart 2 and the information will be included in the next website update.
