QIn the Oc­to­ber is­sue, Phil McLeod was try­ing to find Mary Sal­ter’s bap­tism and ev­i­dence of an Ir­ish brother, Joseph. Af­ter check­ing cen­suses, Steve Ward agrees that Mary was most likely born in Wil­ton, sug­gest­ing Phil recheck Hockwold and Wil­ton church records. He also thinks Joseph Sal­ter may be a rel­a­tive hav­ing moved to Lon­don by 1851. “He and his wife could have had their chil­dren in Wil­ton,” he says, adding, “This may in­di­cate a time of ar­rival from Ire­land and you could check im­mi­gra­tion records.”

Jeff Ward mean­while won­ders if Phil has con­sid­ered non­con­formist records, given the high num­ber in Nor­folk and Suf­folk at this time. He adds, “Also the pos­si­ble Ir­ish con­nec­tion im­plies a Catholic in­volve­ment, which could in­volve a pri­vate bap­tism.”
