Research Notes

<spand Id=1>A. In the census of 1911, James punchard is married, with a 2 year old son. [10] The Census of 1930 records that he was 24 when he married (you could read it as 29, but it is 24), [7] which would make the date of their marriage 1919 or 1920-. So far, I haven't turned up a marriage record for James Punchard. rsl -- Jan 2021
