Last night while researching some of my wife's Hines ancestors I found one of my wife's first cousins 4 x removed enumerated in the 1851 census in West Malling, Kent, as "not named Crosswell" and his age was given as 3 hours. I think the youngest I have found before is 2 weeks! I am sure someone can beat that!

I have discovered that be was christened James (as were a number of other Crosswells) and he lived to at least 1901 (in the census with brother Theophilus (now there's a name for you!) and his wife and children. As far as I know he didn't marry, I haven't yet found a death record for him. He was an ag lab as so many were, so I guess you couldn't really say it was a good life.
