Would anyone like to try to find John Watson Lund for me please ?
I have him with his parents John Watson Lund and Jane as an errand boy in 1861 in Rusholme, Lancashire, and I think he is an assistant master at Mintholme College in Lancashire in 1881 though this is a bit speculative as place of birth is given as Bradford and YOB as 1851 but I can't find him in 1871 or after 1881.

I would be very grateful for any help.

Thanks

Jean

AnnCardiff Report 28 Dec 2012 18:25

would have been good to know his baptismal location at the beginning

Jean

Jean Report 28 Dec 2012 18:32

He was born in Crosshills in Yorkshire which is between Skipton and Keighley in the parish of Kildwick. The nearest city is Bradford which is why I think the 1881 entry may be him.
