My name is Alan Maskell and I live in Northampton and have done since 1974.

My Great Grandfather Benjamin Maskell lived in Back Lane Old Brentford at the time of the 1861 census. Unfortunately, I don't know which number. ( My Grandfather John Maskell was not born until 1862)

Benjamin was born in Caversham, Oxon in 1816. He married his wife Eliza Moore in Hounslow District on 2nd October 1843. Eliza was born in Brentford around 1823. Benjamin died on 29th June 1880 and his wife Eliza on 28th December 1879, both in Brentford.
