Dear John,
I think Catharine MAXWELL /FITTER 's census age is wrong as I have spent a lot of time looking at all her children on the IGI .I found 14 in all and I feel she must have been born 1803 and not 1819 as the census suggests.I had a very good clue pop up in one of Alfred Maxwell and Catharine's children .One was named Catharine Fitter MAXWELL chr 12 May 1835 Saint Martin Birm.
Must be the right "fit" :) for Alfred MAXWELL and Catharine to call a child that name.I found the following 8 children of which I think are the siblings of Catharine FITTER who married Alfred MAXWELL.
Thomas FITTER chr 3 Mar 1789 St Martin
Sarah FITTER chr 16 Mar 1791 "
Elizabeth " chr 25 Jun 1793 "
Mary " chr 3 Jun 1795 "
Ann " chr 2 May 1797 "
Jane " chr 29 Jul 1800 "
Catharine " chr 25 Jan 1803 " my line
James " chr 21 Aug 1805 "
When I found I had a FITTER in my line I too was very surprised there weren't more people looking for their ancestors on this message board.May be the males died off.?
Regards Vicky Harding New Zealand
