I also added a list of birth, marriage and death certificates held:

Census Records Held

Where they were and what they did

I put some of the past events in chronological order to record where Heinrich/Henry Brecht and George Frederick Brecht lived and what their occupations were:

Where they were and what they did

Heinrich k/a Henry Brecht

On the two visits to the London Metropolitan Archives I proved that Heinrich Brecht and Henry Brecht were one and the same. Unfortuntaely the records of St Mary's Islington in 1808 (banns and marriage) did not give any further information, i.e. the couple's ages, addresses or parents' names.

John Christopher Brecht

A cousin found a very exciting entry:

John Christopher Brecht married Susannah Pardom on 25 May 1795 at St Mary's Whitechapel

But who are they?!

Roots of the Brechts and Brights in the USA
