Hi
Was wondering if anyone had any information on Edward Walsh Born 1826 Temple Bristol has found 1861,1871,1881,1891,1901 Census, Marriage Certificate, Death Certificate But having trouble finding his birth certificate and 1841,1851 Census The old family story was that he was from Ireland so very shock to see he was born in Bristol
Any Information would be appreciated

There won't be a birth certificate for him if he was born in 1826 as civil registration did not start until the middle of 1837. The best you can hope for is a baptism record.

Where was he living in the 1861 census?

There are a couple but they are in Ireland BUT I was thinking the parents MAY have taken him to be baptised!!!!!

If the 1891 census I posted earlier is correct then this is the grandchild from that census in the 1881 census:-

Hi
Thanks Everyone
On the 1861 Census he was living with Wife Louisa Born ABT 1827
Son's Edward Born 1853,
Thomas Born 1855
& Frederick Born 1860. In the 1871 Frederick had died and they have had 3 Daughter's Ann Born 1862,
Georgina Born 1865
& Florence Born 1870.
William Gravell who is stated as Grandson is the child of Ann Celine Walsh I Have managed to find a Marriage Certificate??? for Edward Walsh and Louisa Evans Dated 1863 in Bedminster Bristol On this certificate he says that Adam Walsh is Edwards Father
And i have even looked for a Adam Walsh on the 1841 & 1851 Census with no joy
And i have found a Birth Certificate for their son Thomas Born 1855 and stated on his Birth Certificate Mother Louisa Walsh, Late Smith, Formerly Evans So i'm not 100% sure that this is the correct Marriage Certificate
Kind Regards Sue
