Thanks Lesley for looking up James Hobkirk, I guess he was working away in 1861.You didn't mention later censuses so I presume you didn't find him again. Anne.

JAN ******* LDS site is the Mormon Site Sometimes known as Familysearch remove the brackets from this address. www(.)familysearch(.)org Its a good site for early info all though not 100% reliable you need to be weary of info off it but can help point you in right direction...if you find any info off there keep it for reference but dont take it as gospel.... If you do any searches on it its best to just put in the main person eg Mary Guyler but dont put Parents info or spouse info in....put England....and it will throw up all Mary Guylers in England......scroll through til you see birth place match or birth yr match and then click on that record and see what info it says.....

Hi Lesley Please could you lookup the following on 1851 census Thomas Taylor b abt 1821 Giggleswick yrks (husband) Susannah Taylor ( nee Harrison) b 1831 Long preston Yorks (wife). The above is off 1861 census. I think they where living in long Preston with Susannah's parents. Also if possible could you see if you can find Thomas on 1841 census ( i think his father was called joseph). Many thanks Tracy
