  • Name Elizabeth b1811 STURGEON  [1
    • so many websites indicate that charles sturgeon married an elizabeth sturgeon born in a Rackinghall in Suffolk. He was from Suffolk and all the children were born in Suffolk and this is reported consistently on several sites. I would be quite happy to alter it if there is NEW EVIDENCE that indicated otherwise that she is not a STURGEON. a census in 1841 before the family emmigrated and the "ships list" CHINA in the log of travellers, 1850 gives her age as 41, which matches other dates/ages on my heritage, family search, british newspapers, and genalogysa.
