Thomas H -born was my great grandmothers nephew (Mary Hoggarth 1833) -but I believe she grew up with him .
He lived with his grandparents at Ley Pitts . (Thomas Hoggarth 1789 Firbank and Isabella Parks of Killington) He ran the pub in Burton and I think he may have employed my grandfather at one stage.

I have his birth certificate somewhere.I think his mother was Isabell H
but but birth cert does not disclose father! Mother seems to have died young?

I have a fair bit of info and photos if still interested. Kind regards
