Andrea, Thanks for your comment. My information came from Beryl White and Helen Macmannim back in 2003. Although she states 'It was thought that they were not married and the child Sarah may not be his. Rebecah may even have used the name to give the child a father.'. I am currently at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and they do not have access to the Kirtlington parish records here so I cannot check that out, and all my records are back in Brisbane, Queensland where I live. It is great to hear that descendants of Rebecca and Sarah still live in Yakka, I would love to hear more about them. I used to live in Christies Beach, South Australia, for 30 years when we first emigrated, maybe I will be able to get over there again when I return to Australia next year. Did you know about another Trafford line that went to Victoria in the 1850's, James Trafford and his wife Ruth Higgins and family?
