I am researching the Hasler family. Thomas Hasler was born in Ingatestone somewhere between 1826 and 1833 according to the 1871 census. However, I can’t find any more information about the family in Ingatestone. I don’t know if you can help me.

Two things come to mind. Firstly, the 1881 census is free on Ancestry, so a good anchor point to establish Hasler households. Secondly, check for the existence of a baptism of Thomas Hasler in the Ingatestone Parish Registers held at Essex Record Office – I don’t think the recent registers are available on the Essex Ancestors website yet.
