Oh, you can have such fun with this surname! William THREAKALL was baptised at Netteswell, Essex on 14th November 1821 to parents William and Lydia. The 1841 census has William and Lydia (plus 4 of their children) living in Netteswell under the name of THREECALE, but no sign of William Jnr. 1851 has the THREACALL family still living in Netteswell, but still no sign of William Jnr. Up he pops in 1861 in Abbey Road, West Ham, transcribed as HORAKALL (1057/80/23) and saying that he was born in Harlow. Well, Netteswell is only a mile from Harlow town centre. I would be extremely grateful if anyone is able to find the blighter in 1841 and/or 1851. Thank you.
