About Ezra Parsons Appleby

Ezra is the adopted son of Edwin & Rebecca Appleby - this is stated on the 1891 Census.

He was born as Ezra Parsons circa 1875, but was known as Ezra Appleby until his marriage in the 1890s.

The name Ezra Parsons Appleby was used for this, and by 1911he had reverted to his birth name.

It was the use of the name Ezra Parsons that led to the discovery of his wife and children, and the exploits of his grandson (go to the BBC website, look up "The Peoples War" - a wonderful memoir submitted by "rover620").
