If you've found Mary in 1881, you should be able to tell us when and where she was born and the names of her sons.

We need to know what you already know.

I am looking in the proverbial haystack for a John Roberts in the Liverpool/Bootle areas of Lancashire.

I have the marriage of John in 1868 to Mary Mawdsley in Liverpool

I have the baptism of his first child Mary Ellen in 1869 in Bootle

I have not found the family in the 1871 census,

BUT I have found Mary in the 1881 census with her two sons, and a lodger George Massie. Mary is recorded as a labourers wife. If she is recorded as a labourers wife and not Head, I presume that John was away from the house during that census, but I cannot find him.

John Roberts died prior to the 1891 census but was still alive in 1881.

Can fresh eyes find the family for me in 1871

Kathlyn (fingers crossed)
