    That's 20 years of having babies...is that a lot? If the first child was born in 1799 and the last 1819...that's a long time!

    My great grandfather's eldest brother was born in 1837, his younger brother in 1864 - 13 children in 27 years
    My Gran's eldest brother was born in 1885, her youngest brother in 1906 - 13 children in 21 years
    My Grandma's eldest brother was born in 1874, her younger sister in 1897 - 12 children in 23 years.

    It seems to have not been an uncommon occurrence! :D

    Not sure of the birth rate back at the beginning of the 1800's but my grandparents had 9 children, first born 5 Apr 1917 and the last 6 Jul 1938, 21 years of having children.

    My 2Xgreat grandmother had her first in 1864 and her last in 1891. 23 of them, no multiples. She died at age 62, exhausted. The Cornish were good at birthin’ babies but I’m not convinced she was very happy about it all.

    My paternal nan had 12 live births (not all survived) between 1906 and 1923.
    My maternal g.ma had 13 children between 1871 and 1897, the last being born when she was 43.
    So far from uncommon.
