Thanks, as I have said, I lost much of the information, when my laptop crashed as I was trying to upload details, and so I had to summarise from memory But I also found certain records missing too, such as the names of his children. I think 3 were named in one genealogy search, but 1 of his 4 children , a boy, was not.
I think I might have misquoted the date of Sergeant Tootell's marriage, which I think would have been 1851 and not 1855 as stated, with 1855 being the date of birth of his un-named son. There was a reference to William Tootell being a minor in the marriage records, which merely meant that he was under 21 when he married, and so the date of the marriage must have been 1851.
