The Casbon family

By Jon Casbon on 14/09/2015 at 22:14

Hello, I just discovered your lovely website. I'm descended from Isaac Casbon (b. abt 1773 in Meldreth; many spellings of the name: Casbel, Casburn, Casbolt, etc). My ancestors emigrated to the U.S. in the 1840s. I've been puzzling my way through various records trying to connect as many ancestors as possible and have located quite a few in the Meldreth area. One name I am particularly puzzled about is James Casbon. I have a record of James (b. 7 Sep 1806, c.28 Sep 1806). I also have evidence (such as the 1841 census) suggesting that another James was born between 1812-16; however, I haven't been able to find a birth record of this latter James. One of these James emigrated to the U.S. about 1870, but I'm not sure which one. I don't think you can answer that for me, but if you can locate a birth record, marriage records, etc for a James Casbon born between 1812-16, I would appreciate it.
