    Great excitement for you Sis 8(:-) and how come you get surgeons and gentlemen? Are you special? We just get crims....

    I'll leave you to have fun searching the Yonge's, Sis, there's quite a lot about them out there.

    I also thought surgeon first off & ignored it, why? there must have been some, journeyman was 2nd thought but didn't seem to fit.

    No more special than you AM. Wouldn't mind a crim or two though, sometimes they can be more exciting. But Lizzy has now whetted my appetite about the Yonge's. Rare time totally to myself, so off I go Yonge searching. :D

    I found a bit at The National Archives about Jeremiah being admitted to a 'Lunatic Asylum' in 1825. Not digitised so I have requested a quote for a copy.

    No wonder he didn't pop up in 1841 census or later.

    Sis, as you have FMP - look in Apprentices (1710 - 1808) and there is an entry for Jeremiah - 1797

    Jeremiah died in 1827

    Jeremiah Jenkins, Age 48
    Birth year 1779
    Burial date 22 Oct 1827, St Mary, Stafford, Staffordshire

    If you look at the burial register it says he was from the Asylum

    That would go along with this from the National Archives

    I have just downloaded the will of William John Yonge from The National Archives. It consists of 7 pages, too late to try and read it now, so I guess it will make a bit of light reading tomorrow:)

    Thanks again everyone for your efforts.:)
