The following data derives in part from the Cosford Database.
Mary (1) Cundy was christened on January 29th 1803 at Brent Eleigh. The 1851 Census finds her living in Brent Eleigh with her mother. She was buried there at age 77 on July 21st 1880.
Lucy (1) Cundy was christened on July 8th 1804 at Brent Eleigh. Nothing more is known of her.
Peter (2) Cundy was born about 1807 at Brent Eleigh. The 1851 Census finds him living in Brent Eleigh with his mother. In 1860 he married his widowed sister-in-law Mary Moss (nee) Cundy [Marriage Index: Samford 4a 1228, 1860 (Dec)]. She had formerly been the wife of his brother Joseph (1). The 1861 Census finds him living with Mary Moss in his mother's household in Brent Eleigh. It is not certain that Catherine (1) knew he had married, since he is entered as "unmarried" and Mary Moss as "widowed". Mary Moss died in 1863 [Death Index: Cosford 4a 309, 1863 (Dec)] and was buried aged "53" on December 12th 1863 at Brent Eleigh. The 1881 Census finds Peter (2) as a widowed farmer aged "75" living in the Alms Houses at Brent Eleigh. He died aged "77" [Death Index: Cosford 4a 317, 1883 (Sept)] and was buried at Brent Eleigh on September 11th 1883.
Kerenhapuck (1) Cundy was born on April 8th 1808 at Brent Eleigh and was christened there on October 2nd 1808. Her name is a Biblical one, appearing in Job 42 v14 where "Kerenhappuch" is cited as the third daughter of Job.
Joseph (1) Cundy was born on April 15th 1812 at Brent Eleigh and was christened there on June 14th 1812. He married on June 17th 1845 at Brent Eleigh to another member of the Cundy family, namely Mary Moss (nee) Cundy [Marriage Index: Cosford 12 499, 1845 (Sept)]. The marriage was witnessed by John Everett, James Hayward and Mary Cundy - the latter possibly being Joseph (1)'s sister Mary (1). Mary Moss was described then as being of St. Giles Parish in Norwich. However, she had been born in Tattingstone (about 7 miles south of Ipswich) in about 1811, the daughter of an Isaac Cundy. It appears that Joseph (1) and Mary Moss moved to Milden, a tiny hamlet two miles south of Brent Eleigh. They were living there at the time of the 1851 Census. He died in 1856 [Death Index: Cosford 4a 256, 1856 (Dec)] and was buried at Milden aged "44" on November 8th 1856. It is not known whether he had produced any children.
