I think John Aspland is just a random name, used as an example of someone in that workhouse

Thanks for the help. I am looking for my great, great grandfather - Thomas Roberts who moved to London from Gamlingay and he disappears from the census returns in 1871. His wife died in 1876 in the smallpox hospial in Islington, she too is missing from the 1871census and I wondered if they were in a workhouse.

Hi Chris - yes this is him earlier.

He was born in 1840 and he marries Frances (Fanny) Hart in Feb 1867 in Gamlingay Cambridgeshire. I know he moved to London and Fanny died in 1876 but he disappears from the 1871 and 1881 census and he appears again in Leeds in 1891 and 1901 census dying in Leeds in 1909.

(had a look round last night, but no luck)

Do you know where son Stanley was born?, as 1881 now says Caxton.

Was looking for Thomas on 1861, but couldn't see him, Fanny in Gamlingay.
