Greetings Jean
Some time ago Marsha Berry was in touch with you re Isaac Bobbitt, she advised you had been in touch with another person and that Isaac had never left England,Isaac is my ggggrandfather and so far we have not located where he went after about 1870, his life with Susanna Hill and her parents was very turbulent, at one stage his mother in law Anne Charlton attacked him with an axe, he charged her through the courts, when the judge heard the case he was told by the arresting policeman that Susanna and her parents were the biggest drunken crew in Nunawading Victoria, the judge through out the case and said it was a family domestic, given other charges and prison sentences served by Susanna and her mother it is no wonder he deserted the family.
I am wondering if the person that gave you the information that he never left England may have further details that could help locate him.

Regards Tony
