Thanks for the replies. I do have this information. The problem I have is that I cannot find him in the 1841 or 1851 census. I need to see where he is as I cannot get back any further. I know his Mother was Ann and his Father is Jno and that they lived in Hart Street in 1831 and his father was a shoemaker

We know you have the info, Chris, but we don't and we need to start backwards from known data.

I've found the family in 1871 - 1891 but not 1861. Where were they living then?

Hello Chris. When did his father die? If it was early might his mother have remarried and the family recorded under her new husband's name?

You say you can't find William in 1841 - have you found his parents?

And then the following one you can see a lot of family members (and witnesses!).

I think William Hammersley is actually 75.

Hannah goes on to marry Charles Wyatt and George H Hicks and Catherine Thomson are witnesses.

Can't quite figure out who Jane Hicks is???

And still can't find young William !!

Thanks for the 1861 Ozzbird. Been searching for ages. Must remember the little asterisk. Will keep going for now.

I thought that was the marriage Maureen NY but doesn't fit with BC of father John a shoemaker. Wonder if the bc is the wrong William.
