James Branston

  • Born: 1825
  • Christened: 16 Oct 1825, Harbridge, Hampshire, England 852
  • Died: 10 Oct 1876, Affpuddle, Dorset, England at age 51
  • Buried: 13 Oct 1876, Affpuddle, Dorset, England 56,853

bullet   FamilySearch ID: LYG5-RG3.


bullet  General Notes:

A bit of an anomaly in that the 1871 census indicates him to be 40, but should be older. He does not appear on the 1851 census for Affpuddle. Evidently unmarried, or perhaps he was married and living elsewhere, wife died and he returned to East Farm in 1861 and then managed the farm following the death of his mother.
Nigel has him buried in Harbridge, but the parish register of Affpuddle says Affpuddle. Same date, different location.
