Hi Michael,

I'm not researching this family, but found some information that might help you. Edwin Eastway was born in New York, however his parents were from England. Below are census records for Edwin and his family, starting in 1850.

You will find the 1880 census online at http://www.familysearch.org/. Go to "Search for ancestors...", then "Census". Edwin is in Michigan, as well as his brother Egbert. I also found his brother Elias on another census in Michigan - let me know if you want this information.

If you go to Rootsweb's World Connect Project - http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/ - and enter Edwin Eastway in the search boxes, you will find several others who are researching this family.

Regards,
Charlene Dunbar

Just a couple of bits and pieces:
       
From LDS website - http://www.familysearch.org/

Found a christening record for one of the children born to James Eastway and Patty - information extracted from local parish registers - unfortunately the LDS have not extracted all christening and marriage records:

MARGARET MARY EASTWAY - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 06 MAY 1832 Saint Mark, Kennington, London, England
(Surrey County, England)       
       
According to others researching the Eastway family, James Eastway's parents were Elias Eastway and Mary Bates. Found a marriage entry for them on the LDS website showing a marriage date of June 13, 1793, Willian, Hertford, England. This information was extracted from local parish registers.
