1851 census Lookup

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Would someone be kind enough to do a lookup in the 1851 census for Suffolk.
I am looking for a Sarah Alley Chapman b.Lambeth 1839. She is with her family in the 1841 census age 2, and I have her in the 1861 census. I concentrated my search in the Lambeth area, but now believe I should have looked in the Suffolk area but I have used up all my credits.
Thank you

Hi Andy
Sarah's parents are Edward and Jane


Patricia Report 22 Mar 2013 12:15

Thanks Andy - This place in Suffolk is obviously a school I was hoping for more details as to if it was some kind of special school, as I wonder why she was sent so far from home. But I know now where she was.
Thanks again - much appreciated
