I'm not sure where to start looking but I have a Frederick LAMPING in the 1841 census as being born in "Foreign Parts" abt 1766.
He was a widower and I have found one son John Frederick
born about 1793 in Middlesex.
Frederick (the father) died Sept 1849 St Giles, London.
I'd like know what records I should look at to find where he was actually born, I think it may be Germany. Would his death certificate help with marriage and wife's details?
Any other places I should look for in finding where he came from and when?
