I have pretty much hit a brick wall with Him and children's birth certificates. I do know Phoebe's info is true because I am her 3rd great granddaughter. His daughter Emma was born abt 1845 in Compton, Gloucestershire, England. I only have information from the 1851 census.

Thanks for any help you can give me. I will invite you to view my tree if you want to look ok.

Can you post a link to the 1851 census you have found for the family ?

There is a Ferris family in the Cricklade & Wooton Bassett Workouse in 1851 -

Mary Ann Ferris age 33 Born Lydiard Tregooze, Wiltshire
Charles Ferris age 12 born (as above)
Phoeby Ferris age 9 born (as above)
Henry Ferris age 6 born (as above)
Rosanna Ferrris age 3 born Lydiard Millicent

All described as paupers.

The ages of Charles & Phoeby fit very well with the names you gave, but obviously other names don't fit- what sources do you have for the family information ?

If the family you show in 1851 is correct there is no connection to Berkshire or Wiltshire,all born Gloucestershire.

The 1841 and 1851 census entries you have linked to don't appear to be the same family, and neither fit the ages for the children you gave in your first post. You may need to revisit the data you have and look at alternatives.

If Phoebe was born 1841/2 then the entry in the Cricklade workhouse in 1851 may be relevant.

The only birth of Phoebe Ferris,1838-1842,is in Devon,Dec Qtr 1842,can't see a matching baptism.Do you have detail of Phoebe's marriage which will include her father's name and occupation.?You need to re-start your search from here.
