Another Halstead Chart

Whilst sorting out the database following a query from Jenny Noake's on her Great Grandmother Emma Lavinia HALSTEAD who she has born in 1844. Extensive work has been done on the family of William HALSTEAD (1788-1861) and Rachel ? (1791-1864) but it trnaspires from a copy of her tree that she has sent that these aren't the right parents.

This is one of those instances where a census return can really help to resolve a family with similar childrens names and those of the parents. The correct Great Great Grandfather is still William HALSTEAD (1788-1861) but his wife is Rachel ? (1791-1864). Their daughter - again Emma Lavinia - is married to Tom NETHERWOOD and the couple are living with her parents in the 1881 census.

A new chart 36 has been added to the Yorkshire charts
