I do know in the late 1700's there was a Samuel Poucher who was a baker in Hanover Sq London he had 2 daughters but was widowed. It is possible that one the of the daughters is responsible for the passing of the name. I will have to dig up the daughters names somewhere in my boxes of info. Purhaps if we can see who they married it may be easier to work forwards instead of backwards.
I will get back to you

ok the daughters were sarah and mary they were only infants when their father's will was read. He wrote his will in Jan 1777 and the will was read in June of 1777 so he must have been ill and knew he was dieing. The children were to be raised by family I guess. It doesn't really stipulate who would raise them. His will does allow for money for their raising and education. there were not many Pouchers in London/ Middlesex at that time most stayed in the Lincolnshire area or closer to it than London. I will keep you posted as to what else I find

hi
I found this on the freebmd website It would seem he was registered with a different middle name.

Births Jun Qtr 1841

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Lancaster Robert Prout Booker St Geo East 2 101

you can use this information to order his birth record

I noticed in the 1841 census that there is a Harriet Brooks living with them at the Howards residence i wonder if this is any relation to the James Brooker who is listed in the 1851 census as a visitor roughly the same ages. hope this helps

In the 1871 census Robert D Lacaster and wife Barbara are on their own. Roberts occupation is cleark for the West India docks. I can not find any of the family in the 1861 census so it may be that they went to India or just took a holiday on one of the ships. Hard to say.

Thanks so much for all the information. I do have info about him from the 1881 census where he is listed as Robert P B Lancaster and is married to Harriet. They have children - Robert C., Alice B., Ernest W., and Percy James. Do you know more about the name Poucher? Is it French origin? Thanks again for your help, Deb
