Thanks MarieCeleste

That does look like it could be the othr family. I am pretty sure I have the right family now.

Thank you both NMarieCeleste and Catherine for all your help. Now I must add all this info to my tree.

All the best

Thank you for that Catherine. That means that William Faubert probably died before the 1851.

If I could find the other William and Elizabeth faubert on the 1851 then we we would be able to discount one or the other families. I think????

All the best

There could be two William and Elizabeth Faubert on the 1841 census and I am trying to find out if this is my family or not. All I have to go on is that Elizabeth (daughter married on the 6 may 1850 to Jonathan Rushwoth. The marriage cert says William is the father.

I do not have the other 1841 census for William and Elizabeth Faubert / fawbert

Thanks for your help
