Hi Atra,
Thanks for this....this is them. The father is still there. By 1851 he has gone.

Best wishes Pam


Astra Report 22 Jul 2012 08:52

Think the above census should be 1881??

If that is him then this could be his marriage

Can't locate John

Dear Astra,
thanks for your interest and it's good that you found the 1841 Census. I tried the findmypast site for the paymuster of 1861 to see if John had joined up....but not there either. He may have slipped under the radar for 1861...............his mother was down as a puaper in 1851......she may have died and the family split-up. Thanks again.
Pam <3
