I am trying to find any information of family links to my Great Great Grandfather Joseph Yates (born 1825) in Paddington).

On the 1851 census Joseph (aged 25) lived at Shoreditch London with his wife Francis, daughter Fanny, and son Joseph James . He was a cabinet sawyer.

During the 1861 census Joseph lived at 5 Webb Street ,St Mary Newington (aged 35) , lived with wife Francis (35),
Joseph James (10),
Rachel (8) Born Middlesex Islington,
Anthony I (6)
William C (3)
Henry J (1)

On 1871 census Joseph and his family were registred at
11 Carlton Street
Joseph aged 45 Francis aged 45 Francis Born Surrey Bermondsey 1826
Possibly married around 1849 to 1851
Joseph James aged 20 Born Surrey Bermondsey

Anthony John aged 16
William Chas (Charles) aged 12
Born Surrey Bermondsay

Henry Thomas aged 11
Born Surrey Waldsworth
James aged 9
Born Surrey Waldsworth

George aged 6
Born Surrey Peckham

Rosanna aged 4
Born Surrey Peckham

In 1891 census Joseph (aged 65) lived alone at 77 Carnbrook Street Camberwell

Joseph at some stage lived in Camberwell London and had a son born there named William Yates born 1859. William later moved to Swansea where he married Mary Ann on 5th May 1882.

Any help would be really appreciated as I cannot get any further with my Yates tree

Many thanks
