So That's Where I Get It From

What happened to John & Maria Read and their son? All disappear after 1832

I have been puzzled by John and Maria Read and their son for a long time now.  John and Maria married in 1832 and had their son, also called John in 1832.  The marriage and baptism are in the same place that both John and Maria are from.

Despite how much I have searched, I have found no burials for any of them, no other children or found anything about John and Maria anywhere.  I cannot find them in the Censuses or other parish records.

It seems most odd that once they married and their son was born, they completely disappear.

I was informed that around this time there was a mass emigration exodus for the county of Buckinghamshire so thought that would be something to look into.  But where do I start?  Did they go to Australia/New Zealand or America/Canada or somewhere else altogether. 

I have searched throughout Buckinghamshire in case they just moved away, and still have a bit more searching to do, but just haven’t found anything to do with them anywhere.

My discoveries will be reported here!!
