Richard Stevens of Cirencester
Richard STEVENS is my great grandfather who died in Cirencester in 1843 aged 51, according to his death certificate. In the 1841 census his age is given as 45 which makes him born any time between 1792 and 1796. In this census he is said to be born in Gloucestershire. However, I have not been able to trace his baptism. We know from letters he wrote that he spent Xmas Day 1840 with his mother and that he took his two little daughters. This suggests she too was in Cirencester but I have not been able to trace her there in 1841. He married Comfort ORGAN in Cirencester in February 1818. Any leads to his parentage would be very welcome.
