Thankyou to on Saturday, 18 September, 2010
I am not related to the Olney family was just doing a brief search through my data bases. I have a couple of people that I think are missing from your web page. David and Louisa Jane had two further children The David Benjamin you have marrying Annie Montague and James who married Ellen Jane Kennedy. David was was 1855 ref.4881 and James 1865 ref.8294.
I found that these children were registered with the surname Onley.
Thankyou Wendy for your help.
