Footnote :- I know nothing more about James than what appears above. His first wife Ann is shown on the parish record for the christening of their daughter Elizabeth, she might died before the christening or have died shortly after. People in those days remarried within a short period of time for good reason. The man needed some one to attend to home duties and any surviving children and the women needed the protection and support that a man could offer for there was no handouts in those days and times were hard.

I believe that although James junior was Christened on the same day as his sister Catherine, I now believe he was born at an earlier date. There is a notation of St Bride, (Fleet Street) which is in West London, next to their names. I have read this to be where they were born, although the brackets might indicate that they both could have been born at an ealier date. If you look at James's page you can see there is a record of him dying in 1836 at the age of thirty seven, which indicates that he was born in 1799.

I have added Mary Elizabeth Curnis in 2015 as I believe that she too is part of the family and even though I have had some records for her for a while, the information was too sketchy. Recently I found another piece of the jigsaw, as her mother Hester died around the same time as Mary Elizabeth, which make me think it is safe enough to assume they are part of the Tree. For James and his second wife Catharine also lived in Robinhood Court as too did James and Hester.
