I am trying to trace a Milford Hunt (nee Davey) who was born in this area about 1837. She married Robert Hunt in 1862 and they had 4 children. Although I am able to trace their children as far as 1901, Robert and Milford disappear. They may have abandoned their family and moved to Canada. Any information would be appreciated. I would also be interested in trying to track down Robert's parents etc - all I know is that his father was William and a farmer.
