Interest I have centres around Joel Keep. He appears in 1881 census living at Kelly, Wootton aged 45. His wife is Sarah . Both were born in Kempston.
Joel was christened 3 April 1836. at Kempston Parents Charles and Susan
He had a brother James.
Susan was nee Biggs but died shortly after birth of James.
Charles remarried, to Ann but died (Jan.1846)shortly after birth of Rebecca.
1851 census has Joel living with step mother Ann, brother James, half sister Rebecca in Bedford Union - the workhouse.
Charles was christened 25 July 1814 at Wootton
Parents Thomas Keep and Mary
I think Thomas was born in Kempston and married Mary Mobbs Thomas 's parents may have been Richard Keep and Elizabeth Hull - but I'm not sure.
If interested I can elaborate on sourcs and evidence. Can you add any further information
