Hi Reggie,

And thank you - does Violet in the 1901 census appear in the 1911?

Also, I know William Wood (1836) had a daughter named Lucy born 1877. Can you spot her in the 1891? There are two /probable possible deaths for William Wood (one being 1881 and another after 1920). Finding Lucy in the 1891 should eliminate on or the other. Lucy was born Newton House, Ugglebarnly, Yorkshire. With a birthplace like that she will hopefuly be easy to fnd!

Do you know that they survived long enough to appear on later censuses?

Hi there,

I have the following brothers the 1881 census and looking for them in the following ones also:

William Wood (b Ainthorpe, N. Yorks in 1836) married to Mary Jillson in 1875

George Wood born DALE HOUSE, Hinderwell, Yorkshire in 1840 husband of Mary Hodgson (married 1866)

Joseph Wood born 1846 in Dale House, Hinderwell, Yorkshire, husband of Ann Lambert and who I found ont he 1901 census (youngest daughter Maud born 1892 in Cockfield, County Durham)
