With all due respect CT you are way off the mark, I merely read the post from Donne and your response to it. The reason I asked was to do with this newspaper item...
SAD DEATH OF A ST. IVES MAN AT SEA. Intelligence has been received ay St. Ives of the death of Mr. Israel Quick, who about a month ago left the town to become mate of one of the vessels belonging to Messrs. Fox, of Falmouth. From information just received it appears that the vessel left Falmouth for Brazil about a month ago. On the voyage the vessel encountered heavy winds and much sea. So fierce and strong was the gale that the mast, being unable to withstand it, suddenly snapped in two, and fell upon Quick, who was on deck at the time of the accident. Death must have been instantaneous, for it does not appear that the poor fellow spoke a word after the accident. The news of the calamity has completely prostrated the wife, who is now left with two little children.
My initial search did not find a death entry for Israel in FreeBMD. My sole reason for asking was to ascertain where I would be better off looking for a death entry. I will try Familysearch as you suggest.
Regarding your comment about the daughter of Andrew in the 1841 census, I believe looking at all the available evidence she could just as easily be in the Workhouse as could have been the wife of Thomas. It would be good to find the second Elizabeth in the 1841 census I agree.
