Two different families have contacted us about the Mansfield family, from census and other records the following has been identified.

John married Ann and they had at least one son Thomas Mansfield born 1769 and died in 1839 in Chelmsford.

Thomas married Mary (born 1771 died 1846) and had at least one son Jeremiah 1806 born in South Hanningford near Chelmsford, Essex.

At some point Jeremiah moves to Debden (a village near to Henham) and married Eliza Bacon of Debden (1816 to 1861), his occupation is shepherd. On the 1841 census they show Jeremiah aged 30 and Eliza aged 25.


Jeremiah and Eliza had the following children:

William 1834

James 1838 Debden who married Susannah Wix born Henham

Charles 1840 Debden
Sophia 1842 Debden
Emma 1845 Debden
George 1847 Debden who marries Charlotte Knot (or Kent) (born 1844)

Henry 1848 Debden
Harriet 1851
John 1855

Can anyone can shed light on the Mansfield family and are there two Moses ?
