I would be grateful if you would have a look at my reply and let me know the answer.ThanksBrenda Hi Brenda ,looks like the thread has gone now,what was the answer? 42 Simon, you do realise this could lead to another dot com boom like thread don't you? It would never happen. Every poster on SL has a cracking sense of humour... Don't they? Quite so simon, cracking. Just deleted what I was going to psot, might be seen as having a dig. I'll consult my guide insteas and see if it recommends anywhere 'interesting' to visit.

A search for an Ellen Daniel born Yorkshire1821-1826 shows a baptism in Leeds21 JUL 1826 Saint Patricks York Road-Roman Catholic.parents Edward and Mary.A search for an Edward Daniel in Yorkshire around 1828 produces a baptism in leedsd16 AUG 1829 Saint Patricks York Road-Roman Catholic,parents Edward and Mary.So i think you could say that you have the correct baptisms parents,though i would have to say that these are probably not your Daniels as the eldest in this census ,James,is not born in Yorkshire,and there appears to be no marriage on the IGI in Yorkshire for a Edward Daniels and a Mary between 1815 and 1825.

On the original answer you gave it did say Coburg, is that right?My daniels lived and died in Coburg Street, which is why I was chasing this one.

Oh yes it did say Coburg.It would probably take some further digging to prove the origins of Edward the father,however there does not seem to be any likely Yorkshire candidate according to the IGI.Looks like it could be just sheer coincidence that your Daniels are on the same street.
