I am looking for the background to Martha Eason, Chrstnd 15/6/1813, who went on to marry William Hall 23/5/1833 in Threekingham, Lincs.
I believe her parents were Joseph and Mary Eason, but there seems to be several to pick from.
In the 1841 census I have come across Joseph Eason, age 75 and wife Mary, age 50, together with children Jane, John, Emma and Isaac + a John Eason, age 60, who I assume is Joseph's Brother ? There seems to be a substantial difference in ages between Joseph and his wife, which makes me think that he may have married more than once. I have come across a Joseph Eason marrying Mary Phenix/Fenick? in 1793 and also marrying Mary Tupholme in 1815.
So...can anyone please say if this is the one and same Joseph, if and when did the first wife die, if there was one, when and where was Joseph born , and who were his parents ?
This may be a lot to follow, but I live in hope. Thanks
