    shoemakers Nunn

    Hi,I am trying to find out about my NUNN family from Ipswich,Suffolk.On the census it tells me that John Nunn born abt 1807 and his son Benjamin Nunn born abt 1833 were both bootclosers /shoemakers.Mary Ann Nunn born abt 1845 was a bootbinder ,this is Benjamins sister so it looks like it was the main occupation of this family.How can I find out more ?

    Which census is giving you that info?

    I can see Benjamin in 1871 and 1881 (and on the 1841 age 11, so born 1830).

          I think I may have had one of your Nunn birth certificates in my hand about a year ago. Alice of that ilk, born about 1870. My Alice was someone completely different and I dumped the cert.

              Sorry, no. I was doing a project for my aged aunt, so that was just one of many certificates I had floating around.

                  So now you've confirmed that the 1841 family I found is yours, what is the "more" you want to find?
