I'd like to say "Thanks" to Phil and Polly for the 1841 & 1851 census information for George & Thomas Powell of Canondale farm.
I have another question regarding another relative. How would I find information which may have appeared in a newspaper in about October 1933? The information that I have is there was a bad automobile accident and Will Hartland, his wife & daughter and my great aunt, Kitty (Katie) Garstone were in the car. The letter I have states "the car slid and overturned & Will was killed, his wife's arm was broken & badly bruised all over & is still in hospital last week and his daughter's nose broken". "Kitty got bad lacerations about the head & face". Apparently the accident happened on a hill at Callow when Will hit a pole.
I wrote to the daughter, Phyllis Hartland, a few years ago but I have since found out that she died before the letter was written.
I don't know the wife's name. "Will" (William Benjamin Hartland) was 8 on the 1881 census, his parents were William Edward Hartland and Harriett Preece. I know the parents lived at Little Dewchurch. Thank you for any information.
