    Welcome eddyjack

    If you have the names of these 4, try & find their birth registrations in the FreeBMD site, then you could buy a birth cert to discover the parents.

    If you are confused, come back & say so

      The workhouse records, if they survive, may offer clues.

      Can you provide the names of your gt grandfather and his brothers? Their father's name and occupation should appear on these chaps' marriage certs.

            Right - I'm gonna guess at it being Jackson:

            1861 census

            Great Ouseburn
            Benjamin Jackson 9
            Henry Jackson 13
            John Jackson 11

                    There's a death for ELizabeth Jackson in 1856 in Great Ouseburn and JOhn Jackson in 1859

                    ALthough Great Ouseburn wasn't created until 1854 and I don't know what it was before that - so that may not be them

                          According to 1841 census Boroughbridge was a sub registration district for Knaresborough reg district.

                          And according to Genuki Great Ouseburn Registration District Great Ouseburn was created from Easingwold, Knaresborough and Ripon registration districts, so Zoe's finds look likely, though of course Jackson is a relatively common name.

                                But we're missing something, unless John b 1820ish had sons called Henry and Benjamin. He had brothers called William and Benjamin. I am muddling the generations I think.

                                  I wondered if Thomas was Henry!??!

                                  Benjamin would have been born about 1851/2 so that could be why he's not showing on the census where his parents were alive
