"the pattern for recognising it" was a gap of a couple of years, then children dying young for a couple of years, and then children with disabilities (e.g. blindness) for a couple of years... approximately.

ahh thanks Wendy and Christine..

it made sense at the time, but I forgot the mechanics of it all..

I have discovered some new family but there are a few short lived children, though I dont have details.. I wondered if there was a pattern.

Could just be general unhealthy conditions. I've just found one poor mite born q1 1891, enumerated as 2 months old and died in q2.
