Just bringing this back - keep losing it!! SORRY LOOKED AGAIN STILL CANT FIND THEM _ SORRY I cannot find my great, great grandfather on either the 1891 and 1901 censuses. John Atkins, was born 16th October 1870 in Portsea. He came from a family of fishermen so perhaps he could have been at sea on the '91 and 1901, but his brothers were all around so I don't know why he wasn't. His 'wife' was Alice Amelia Cole - I say 'wife' because I have yet to find their marriage details, it is possible that the records were destroyed in WW2, as one of the major churches here in Portsmouth was bombed and all records destroyed. They had six chidren that should have been around in 1901, John 1892, George 1893, (my great grandfather), Alice Louisa Adelaide 1895, Sarah Ann 1897, Thomas Gordon 1899 and James Herbert born 1900 but he died in the Sep Qtr of 1901. I have found Alice (his wife), in hospital on Census night 1901, and one of the children, Sarah is with a relation. As for the rest of them - Who Knows!!

Hi Jess Thanks very much for that. William wasn't married in 1891 and it would be brilliant if you could find him on that census as I was wondering if his mother, Mary Ann Revill, was still alive and if they had already moved to Leicestershire. Thanks very much for your help. Lindsey
