Hi there,

There is a John Scott, buried in Brignall, North Yorkshire on 9 December 1861.

He was 73.

Can someone try and spot him in the 1841/1851 and 1861 census?

I suspect he may be an ancestor of mine but not sure.

Thank you,

Peter

Thank you - Brignall is close to the North Yorkshire/County Durham border.

I suspect this is the same person - whether he is a relative of mine would need further work, but thank you so much. Is he on the 1841?

Thank you again!

Thank you - yes that seems to be them!

Can you spot a Jane Scott in the 1841 census? Living in Brignall, born 1818?

I was hoping she would be in this household.

Thank you,

Peter
