Penelope, Wow, Great work! I think the occupation for James Beverley was a Carter or Horse Driver/Labourer so that is probably on the lines of what you couldn't read. Cool, It has a district where he was born . . That may lead me somewhere !!! Unfortunately I am not sure exactly when Solomon Lewis & Henda Cohen/Lewis got to England and got married. I have found out tonight that Solomon Lewis (anglicised from Liebovici) –born in Romania, circa 1878 and died 1924 Henda Cohen – born in Romania, circa 1880 and died 1966 I believe they had been in England late 19th century before returning either around the time of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee or her death. I was hoping they may or one of them may have registered for the 1901 census at least but if you havent had any luck then I suppose I will have to wait for the 1911 census to come along Many thanks Paul
