While Thomas and Frances Dunkley are not my direct line I am interested in them just to figure out what happened in the life of Frances. All this is in Lutterworth.

William and Hannah DRIVER nee COATON had 11 children between 1787 and 1803. All died before 1803 except my direct line of Samuel DRIVER and his sister Frances Coaton DRIVER, (Christened 5 Feb 1788). In 1812 there is a birth listed in the Parish records "Charles Moore, Son of Frances Driver " I think it is not listed as an illegitimate birth as her grandfather was the Parish clerk. The LDS has picked this up as Frances
being the father. Little did they know. I next find a marriage for Thomas DUNKLEY and Frances DRIVER in 1824 followed by the birth of there children in the independent Church. And finally I find the burial notice for a "Frances Coaton DRIVER,
Woodmarket, Jan 18th 1852 at age 64".

It is very interesting, and I would like to know why, she was born and buried Frances Coaton DRIVER but was married to Frances Dunkley.

If you run across any information on the above I would enjoy seeing it.

Thanks for your time and information and good luck in your research,
