Samuel Turner 1850 - 1864. No trace after 1861C.. So probably died, aged 14, in Mar/Jun 1864, before ages were recorded on BMD.

Alfred Turner 1852- 1866. No trace after 1861C. Think he probably died, aged 14. in Sep 1866, ref 4a.255 Dunmow. . . . . Stebbing C of E Burials after 1854 not on SEAX: anyway they would probably have been buried in the Congregational Church! - D/NC 43/5/2 or 3 - have found an 1860 death somewhere although not seemingly covered by either of these registers.

From the Frank Howland book: Jerry Lagden farmed Whitehouse Farm for a Mr. Martin , a dental surgeon, of North End, ~1900

There is a Garry Lagden, b.1936, in Stebbing today -2010. His parents were Reuben Lagden & Marjorie Chopping, b. 1904 to Reuben Chopping in Stebbing, who married in Braintree 1928 . Reuben Lagdon, b.1899, was a son of William Lagdon, 1868, horsekeeper on farm, Bran End, in 1911. This William Lagdon was a younger brother of Jeremiah, 1856, Sarah's husband. Thus Sarah Turner was an aunt by marriage to Reuben Lagdon, a greataunt by marriage to Garry Lagden 1936, probably still alive. The Choppings were a Stebbing family, farming , living Mill Lane in 1911.

James Turner 1861- born Mar 1861. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ......... .

1881C. Aged 19, ? Farm House, Stebbing [nr.Badcocks & Whitehouse], a servant to a farm bailiff. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

1891C Aged 29, gen.lab.,boarder, Bromley St Leonard . . . . . . 1896. Marries Mary Ann Kimber Mar 1896 2a.529 Bromley . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1901C. Aged 40, in Bromley, Mary Ann 45, b. Gt.Easton, Joseph Smith 9 stepson, Eleanor 4 daughter, both b.Bromley. I cannot find this family in 1911C.

I hope that one day I will encounter a descendant of one of Ezekiel's children: Lagdons seem the likeliest possibility.
