Alfred b. 1842 is the son of Michael and Elizabeth (Farmbrough) Rose and is the 2 x great grandson of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read.
He and his wife Octavia Farmbrough b. 1842 are cousins to each other and she is related to the same family as Alfred’s mother. Octavia is the 2 x great granddaughter of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read.
