Their son Ge­orge had been born out there in 1850, and a daugh­ter El­iza in 1852. Young Ge­orge was back in the Mid­lands as a lit­tle boy with his sib­lings. He was also in Wed­nes­bury in 1881, aged 31. It seems his mother Mary came back with the chil­dren, oth­er­wise I can’t work out how they got home. I’ve found no trace of her and can’t work out why they went to South Amer­ica, how they got there, and why, and how the chil­dren got back to the Mid­lands. Any ideas? Pat Watts, by email
