    Copied entries in a Purssell family bible

    Charlotte 1811 -1812

  • John Roger 1812 -1821
  • Joseph 1815-
  • William 1816 -1821
  • James 1821 –
  • John Roger 1823 –
  • Edmund 1825 -1833
  • Frances Jane 1827 -1914 (Mother St George)
  • Alfred Purssell 1831 -1896?/97 (Grandpapa)

This didn’t prove to be as accurate as it appears. It certainly gives the impression that  Alfred and Frances are the only ones who survived into adult life which isn’t the case, and I think there are a few more children who died young, who may yet turn up

But the following is more accurate.

  • Charlotte 1811 -1869 in London
  • John Roger 1812 -1821
  • Joseph 1815- 1888 died in Victoria, Australia
  • William 1816 -1870 probably in Pangbourne, Berkshire
  • James 1821 – March 4, 1887 in New York City
  • John Roger 1823 – 1902 in London
  • Edmund 1825 -1833
  • France Jane 1827 -1914 (Mother St George) in Norwood
  • Alfred  1831 -1897
