My husbands grandfather James William Gardiner was born in Portsmouth about 1865. His father William James was a publican. We can find no trace of him before 1901. when he lived in Colchester. Neither of them are on any earlier census. Could anybody, maybe from Portsmouth help us.

I messaged Sally yesterday asking her to come back to her thread, the message has been read, but it appears she is no longer urgently needing this data!
