Hello, i have asked before about this person but are still banging my head,below is the 1901 census for him maybe.John was born in 1884 Wadhurst Sussex and son of John and Charlotte Humphrey,

Is john still hanging around the London area maybe?

1901 census transcription details for: 55, Queens Gate Mews, Kensington
Print Close

I thought my john was the one who died in 1959 Hastings with son William John Humphrey, but at the moment its looking like John might be the son of Jabez Humphrey.

yes mary,
The above death was for a john Humphrey but his son william j Humphrey was witness so i am assuming now the above John is the son of a Jabez Humphrey.

I thought he may be mine also because on his death cert he was a gardener.

I say this because my John didnt have a brother called Henry.
And because of this census below,

1911
HUMPHREY, John Head Married M 27 1884 Waggoner On Farm Sussex Mayfield
HUMPHREY, Lizzie Wife Married6 years F 31 1880 Sussex Mayfield
HUMPHREY, W John Son M 5 1906 Sussex Waldron
