I have now discovered a Lethaby family living in Winscombe, Somerset
in the 1851 census. This is the only Lethaby family I have yet
discovered that had a child John of 11 months that could be my
Grandfather. It states he was born in Bristol. The head of house was
John, (also born in Bristol) wife Charlotte (born Wedmore) and
daughter Elizabeth (born Bristol). There was also an Ann Willis aged
70 (mother-in-law) living with them. I know from my grandfathers
death certificate that his father was also John and have recently
learned he had a sister Elizabeth. I feel very sure this is my
family, but where in Bristol could the birth have been? How would I
find out? I have not seen this family on the LDS IGI.
Any help would be appreciated. The Charles Rossiter, My grandmothers
first husband, is not related to me, but of course is related to my
cousins born of grandmothers first marriage.
Thank you again for your interest Terrance.

> This is fascinating, what an unusual name. Also have Rossiters in
my family tree.Trying to find out who has records for Devon. Peggy
Goodger in Birmingham has records for Somerset. Her grandmother was
my great grandfathers youngest sister and has helped with the Parfitt
family back to 1802.
