Notes for JOHN MUCKLESTON:

Need to confirm his parentage -need to validate his parentage as his father married Catherine in 1840 and she is still his wife in 1851. TPR says his mother is Jane - this could be a transcription error.

He can be found on the 1861 census as a Confectioners Apprentice and on the 1871 census as a Baker living and working with John / Thomas Plimmer.

I suspect that this marriage and child should belong to the John born 1845 - possibly Elizabeth Griffiths was also known as Margaret Elizabeth Griffiths. I also suspect that this child died young.

did this john die in Australia with his brother Samuel?
