Thanks Jean.

Yes, it should be Thomas Flower(c1782-1849) and not David Flower.

I encouraged Guardsman1954 to use this forum but I did the posting for him and I made the mistake.

Thanks again - Peter

Hello, We are looking for Thomas Flower's birth place,thought it was
Weaverthorpe or Eastand West Lutton but the parish registers say not,
so if anyone has any information about his birthplace we would be delighted to hear from you as I am no farther on after three years
Many Thanks,Guardsman 1954 D.F.
