Hello,
I have found John Humphrey born 1883 on the 191 Census Summary books, at 114 Salisbury Terrace Cross in Hand,

But when i look for him on the 1911 census, i cannot find him,
Am i doing something wrong?

Any help appreciated,

Where is Hand, please?

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 Sep 2013 08:56

Could you get rid of all the space, please..................

WHERE was he born?

Do you KNOW that he would have been alive in 1911?

Have you looked using just forename and birth info?

The surname is open to multiple variations..............

Which site are you using?

The only census record I can find does not match your info

I'm assuming that by 191 you mean 1901

Reggie Report 4 Sep 2013 09:08

Post exactly what you've found..................please.

And confirm the YEAR

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 Sep 2013 09:10

You haven't answered the question about whether you KNOW he should be around in 1911

Pam

Pam Report 4 Sep 2013 09:12

Can you post the census result for 1901 that you found please. I have checked 26 John Humphrey results on 1901 census and there is not one for Salisbury Terrace.

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 Sep 2013 09:14

There is NO result for Salisbury Terrace anywhere in Sussex in 1901

Pam

Pam Report 4 Sep 2013 09:14

Is 191 Summary Book 1901 or 1911 ?

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 Sep 2013 09:16

Having googled, I find that Waldron is in the vicinity of HEATHFIELD

ManfromMars

ManfromMars Report 4 Sep 2013 09:17

Right, sorry i missed out a 1 it should be the 1911 census i am looking for him, i did find him on the 1911 summary books.

Its okay now i have found him by following someone else, and then paging through all people that lived in that area.

he just didnt come up at first,

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 Sep 2013 09:21

You're right, Pam.........he means 1911. Why don't people proof-read?

The ONLY record in 1911 for the address is Schedule 115

However, using that........I've found the image for the Humphrey family
