Can anyone help with my research into living descendants of Soham family?

I am looking for descendants of my three grandparents James Fisk C1808-C1860 and Hannah Cheviss C1813-C1878, who married at Soham on November 8, 1828.

They were both born and lived by farming at the Eastfen Common.

Their children as recorded in the 1841 census are Eliza b1830, Sophia b1832, Naomi b1834, Emma b1836, Lydia b1838 and James b1841.

Other younger children of Charles b1845 (my great-grandfather) - Robert b1849 and Harriet b1851 - are also included in the 1851 census.

If you can help with information regarding living descendants, please reply to
