In searching the 1850 New York census, I came across two Penfold families in Lockport New York:
1. S.S. Penfold, age 29, born in England; Mary (his wife) age 22, born in Canada; and James (his son)age 1, born in N.Y.
2.William Penfold, age 23, born in England; Maria (his wife), age 22, born N.Y.; Loretta Chapman, age 14, born in N.Y.; Frank Penfold, age 1, born in England; John Penfold, age 1 mo., born in New York.
Does anyone know either of these two families?
