red mail Albert Mico Sheppard
Seeking any additional information on Albert Mico Sheppard. Albert was born to William Hulbert Sheppard and Hannah Pollett. He was baptized in 1836. He is listed in the 1841 Frome Census but not in the 1851 Census. The next records for him are, listed as a registered Surveyor in Victoria, Australia in 1861 and then as a registered Surveyor in New South Wales, Australia in 1863 and 1864 and then as a registered Surveyor in New Zealand in 1865. He marries Anna Margaret Griffin in New Zealand in 1869. There are a number of Newspaper entries in New Zealand indicating his involvement in Surveying or with Gold Mining interests. I am particularly interested in his movements in England after 1841 or emigration to Australia and any other activities or involvement in Australia.

red mail King Shoemaker
I am interested in John King born c 1832 in Frome. He lived in Llantwit Fardre, Glamorgan for most of his life where he worked as a shoemaker. He married Cecilia (surname pretty sure is Davies) but have not been able to find any marriage docs. (The 2 likely marriages according to Ancestry were in Pontypool in 1857 and 1858 but they could not be found by the GRO.) It is possible that John's mother was called Mary Ann and if it was then he had 2 sisters called Elizabeth & Fanny. Elizabeth may have been his twin. If Mary Ann is correct, she appears to have remarried to a James Withey. Any information on the parents of John King would be greatly appreciated.
