Hi John,
Thanks for your reply. Yes, Margaret Percival was the mother of Mary Elizabeth Carter who married Thomas Newall/Newell. They were my husbands great grandparents. Do you know the story about Margaret ? There's a bit of notoriety there. 4 marriages and a murder! I was contacted recently by the descendant of her fourth husband and have the details, if you don't know the tale and are interested.

I didn't know about Peter; as I had only the 1861 census to go on and he must be living elsewhere then. 1861 has John age 70, wife Elizabeth 61, son Thomas 32, daughter in law Mary A Percival 30 and interestingly Margaret Carter age 30 and married. Her husband William Carter, who incidentally is her second husband, is with his own father and siblings on census night 1861 at Shipbrook Farm, Shipbrook Lane.

Do you hve any more info on the Percivals, perhaps siblings, I don't know about ?

Regards
Suzanne
