Hi both, thanks, his dob is definitely 1829 and I forgot to mention that his birth place is Houghton le Skerne and Elizabeth's birth place is Ryton, both Durham. Any chance of the 1841 census please.


Andrew Report 14 May 2013 19:59

Age on 1861 census has been heavily crossed through. Could well be 33 not 23

Definitely Thomas on the image. His occupation is engine driver. Date and place of birth for Elizabeth agree with 1861.

Hello, the above is on the 1841 cenus at Stockton & sedgefield reg district/parish aged 27. That is how his name is spelt. Could someone please take a look for the usual details and I would also like to know where he is in 1851 but I cannot find him on the index. Also his proper name is Wheatman Readman. He marries Elizabeth Hall in 1847. On the 1861 cenus for Freecen his occupation is railway engine driver. He dies in 1864 (of smallpox according to parish records). Thank you.
