I have David, allegedly born 1809 Bermondsey, married to Mary Ann Pulley (sic). He is in the 1861 and she is widowed in 1871. In 1861 they are living in Clerkenwell and in 1871 she is living in Bethnal Green. FreeBMD has no burials for a David James between 1861 and 1871 but does have one in Bethnal green 1863 so I sent for the 'stificate. This says that David was a labourer who died a violent death from a fall and there was an inquest on 6th October 1863. He died on 28th September 1863. I dont think this is my chap as he was a watch pinion maker. I wondered whether there were any newspaper reports of the grisly death in case I can rule him back in.
