Can I ask for your help please?

I am looking for a Thomas Sturgeon in the 1841 census.

I did find him some time ago but have lost him.

I think his name was down as Sturgen,he was born and lived Stanton Suffolk.
His birth date varies so I cant give you this,sorry

He was with his wife Elizabeth and son Henry and lived in Bury Lane and was still there in 1851

Many thanks

Thank you Maddie. This is the one I was looking for



Sheila Report 27 Nov 2012 15:51

Thank you Gins,these people seem more of the right age.
But i was going by the address that i have for them.

I must have another think on these folk.

Its the same family and same address, its just that FMP (Maddies version) has the wrong age for Thomas

On Ancestry, they have the name mistrancsribed but the age for Thomas does say 52 on the actual census record
