Hi Helen,
Thankyou so much for the census information.. you have helped me knock down a huge brick wall . George Henry emigrated to Australia, his death entry stated his parents as Isaac & Alice at least I know now that it was Isaac and Jane Louisa Reeve.

Is there anything listed for Isaac in the 1841 & 1851 census, it may take me back another generation..

Thanking you so much..

1841

Isaac seems to have been the son of Isaac & Mary Ann Fountain. Isaac senior was also a shoemaker.

1851 Isaac Fountain (Senior) is still at 54 Queens Head walk. Ancestry have read his age as 32 but it is 52. He was born St Botolph's parish Aldgate which is part of London in Middlesex.Mary Anns birthplace is just given as Middlesex and she is 52 also.
