HI, I am trying to locate a brnach of my family in the 1881 census - i can find them in all theother relevant ones, but not hisone for some reason.

The family are headed by George Mapplebeck Laverack 1821-1890. His wife is Mary (maiden name as yet unknown), and their children include Isaac, WIlliam, Mary, and Alfred. I can only locate Isaac in the 1881 census.

I wold be very grateful for any help/advice in tracking down this record.

Kind regards
Samantha

Hi,

They were from Sculcoates/Kingston-upon-Hull... I have asked for information regarding a descendant of theirs, but no this particular family.

Kind regards,
Samantha

Thank you very much - the census record for George is defitniely the correct one, and the one for William certainly seems like a match! Thank you!

I get George's middle anem from his christening record.

It's just such a puzzle as to where they are in 1881.

I greatly appreciate your help

Kindest regards
Samantha

I'm sorry, but I can't see George in 1881.............hope someone else is more fortunate

I've exhausted all the options I can think of..........
