James Cross was the first of the fifteen known children of Philip Cross and his wife Mary (née Ong) of Ely.
Mary is noted as being just 16¾ when James was baptised in 1791.
James grew up in the Holy Trinity parish of Ely and appears here at "Turbotsey" in 1841, noted as an Agricultural Labourer, with his wife Eliza and their eleven children.
It would appear that at the time of the 1851 census, James was down on his luck, as he appears as a 'debtor' in the county gaol at Castle Street, Cambridge. It is not yet clear as to why he was in jail but this can probably be quite easily uncovered. Meanwhile, his wife Elizabeth, appears as living at Waterden Fen with their sons James, Jacob and Uriah, daughter Jane, and daughter-in-law Emily. Elizabeth is noted as "married".
1791, Ely, Cambridgeshire.
30th April 1791 at Holy Trinity, Ely, Cambridgeshire.
