James and Sarah married in 1853 in Edlesborough .
I am trying to trace their children after 1871 . The children
John Thomas b 1856
Mary Elizabeth 1857 and Caroline 1860  ended up with out parents in the Union Workhouse  Leighton Buzzard ( Census 1871)
I have tried to trace further without success . I understand that orphans if that is what they were, were shipped tom Canada or Australia .
I would like to solve the mystery of the whole family .

Hi Marilyn....Seems quite a mystery.
Can't seem to find any deaths that would fit between 1871-1881 but I do know from records that they didn't die in Leighton Buzzard workhouse although there are some births and deaths for the Irons family.
