JohnFerris Report 28 Feb 2013 17:45

I am seeking confirmation of my great grandfather Henry Ferris' date of birth, date of marriage and death and also his parents.
He married a Fanny Wakefield also born in Dauntsey in 1842.
I can clearly see them both on 1881 census with sons William born in 1873 in Windsor, Henry James born 1875 (my grandfather) and daughter Edith Elizabeth born 1877 living in Fulham, Middlesex.
On 1891 census Fanny is a widow and living in Haworth Yorkshire.
I have seen him on 1851, 1861, 1871 censuses, at least I think its him.

Also I am very interested in establishing why the family moved from London to Haworth.

I have "found out more" by responding to various references to Henry on other peoples trees as indicated on some of my finds, but have not received any replies to date.

Any help greatly appreciated.

John Ferris
