Carolyn LaPorte Sherry, This is what I found. 1881 Hodnet, Hodnet, Shropshire GREGORY Richard age 71, infirm, formerly labourer, born Ightfield Sarah 61 born Rushmore Esther - granddaughter age 13, scholar born Wollerton 1871 Wollerton, Shropshire GREGORY Richard age 60, farm laborer born Hodnet, Shropshire Sarah age 51 born Wrockwardine, Shropshire John- son - age 25 farm laborer, born Wollerton, Shropshire Emma - daughter - age 12 born Wollerton, Shropshire Esther - granddaughter - age 2 born Wollerton, Shropshire 1861 Wollerton, Shropshire GREGORY Richare age 50 farm labor born Wollerton, Shropshire Sarah laborers wife age 41 born Rushmore, Shropshire Wiliam son age 12 scholar born Wollerton Esther duaghter age 8 scholar born Wollerton Charles son age 6 born Wollerton Emma daughter age 2 born Wollerton 1851 Wollerton Shropshire GREGORY Richard age 40 ag. labor born Coura (looks like, hard to read), Shropshire Sarah age 30 born Rushmore, Shropshire John son age 6 scholar born Wollerton, Shropshire Thomas son agd 5 scholar born Wollerton William son age 2 born Wollerton next door GREGORY Richard age 77 ag. laborer born Hinton, Shropshire Ann age 70 born Barton, Cheshire 1841 Hodnet, Shropshire GREGORY Richard age 65, ag. laborer born Shropshire Ann age 55 born other (they ask if born Shropshire or not - no place shown) 1841 Hodnet, Shropshire DABBS Sarah age 20 born Shropshire. She is living in home of an Innkeeper. Sarah is shown as F.I. or F.L. under occupation I could not find younger Richard in 1841. 1841 Wrockwardine, Shropshire DABBS John age 47 Ag. Labor born Shropshire Mary age 43 born Shropshire Mary age 10 born Shropshire Jane age 7 born Shropshire ------------------ So, of the children of Richard and Sarah that you mention each was found in at least once census except for Mary born 1851. She is not with them in 1861 so could she have died? Also you metnion Esther born 1867 but she seems to be a granddaughter, not a daughter as per 1871 & 1881 census. I am going to see if I can find anything on their children after they disappear from the census - maybe will find them elsewhere in England or maybe as you say they may have gone to another country - Canada? U.S.? Australia? Will see if I can find anything for you. I think it likely that the Richard and Ann living next door in 1851 are Richard's parents. Too bad there isn't an 1831 census to read. all for now, Carolyn
