Yes thats him

Hi Shirley,

On the 1901 Census his birth place is Grays Inn Road, I don,t know his natural Fathers name thats why I have been trawling the 1881 Census to no avail. I thought I could find his Mothers name if I seached Mason and Mills on the 1891 census but nothing. I know he called himself Mason for awhile until his marriage to Catherine when he reverted to Mills.

What were his parents names,and where was George born please


chappo Report 15 Jan 2013 09:33

Dear All,

Wonder if you can help, I am having trouble finding George on 1881 census.

I know his natural Father died and his Mother lived with a man called Mason and the family all took that surname. Have searched on the 1891 census and can't pin point them. I have been told they lived near Lavender Hill in Battersea. On the 1901 census he is living Clarendon bulings Walworth with wife Caterine and children Edwin and Cornelius. I assumed I'd find him on the 1881 with his natural Father but can't pinpoint that either.

Thanks ;-)
