    Notes 

    • I did find this marriage that fits in with Philip David's (born 1819) birth, and the fact that he had Hannah living with him in 1850 and Catherine had her with her even longer.

      Her name on this marriage record is hard to decipher. Looks more like Eacih.

      This 1820 fits OK.

      But this 1840 doesn't fit so well. Phillip is not here - although at 21 he may have been elsewhere, but Hannah is in the wrong box - could be a mistake.
