Who's Who -- John & Sarah Platt's Family

John Platts (b. abt 1837) married Sarah Redfern (b. abt 1847) in Derbyshire, England in 1867. I have ordered a marriage certificate which I hope to post soon. They had the following children:

Samuel Platts (b. abt. 1868, Holloway, Ashover, Derbyshire, England)
Anne E. Platts (b. abt. 1869, Holloway, Ashover, Derbyshire, England)
William Platts (b. abt. 1871, Holloway, Ashover, Derbyshire, England)
Albert John Platts (b. 16 June 1873, Wellington, Guelph, Ontario, Canada)
Thomas Platts (b. 23 Mar 1875, Wellington, Guelph, Ontario, Canada)
Mary Ellen Platts (b. 9 Dec 1876, Wellington, Guelph, Ontario, Canada)
Clara Platts (b. 10 Jul 1878, Wellington, Guelph, Ontario, Canada)
Alfred Platts (b. 29 Sep 1879, Wellington, Guelph, Ontario, Canada)

When looking at a family group from the 1800's, I am always amazed at how many kids they had, and so soon apart. However, it can be a big help too! In looking at the above, the family's move from England to Canada is very narrowed down to around 1872!
