In 1851 this family at 6 Regent St. Leamington Priors, Leamington with William, Mary, Eliza, Harriett, William b1843 & a visitor - Joseph Whitehead b1787 who could be brother of wife Mary.
In 1861 (name now spelt SANSFORD) William, Mary, Harriett, William & married daughter Mary Ann BRADNOCK b1837 with her son Alfred b1859 living at 14 Windsor St. Leamington Priors.
Do you think this is your family?
