Hi Tracy I have tried very unsuccessfully to find two b men on the 1891 census: on the 1881 Census JOHN BAYLEY born Holborn 1838/40 living with his family at 4 Pontypool Place Southwark, London, occupation Printers Labourer, then he and family disappear, he finally turns up on the 1901 census in Pentonville prison- occupation Compositor The other one is THOMAS HOLMES born Wiltshire 1855/56, can find him on the 1881 and 1901censuses living in Wandsworth, Surrey, his occupation I would think would be a labourer Any help would be very much appreciated Regards Shirley

Jean, I went through all William Marsh's in 1851 to see if I could find a match between that and a Henry in 1861, but failed miserably. The only one that looked promising was this... William Marsh abt 1811 Bakewell, Derbyshire, England Barnsley Yorkshire but I couldn't find him in 1861.

Sorry Georgina, I don't think I can do that one. 1920 means possibly up to, but not after.

Sheila, it's not her. I was pointing to Frederick. Lily is his cousin.

Moe, I think this is out of my domain. I can't do births, if they're not on FreeBMD, before 1866. There is a Mary Nolan in Jun 1856, but the location of the registration is very difficult to read. I don't know if you've looked at the image, but you can do that on FreeBMD.

I'd be so glad if you could solve my mystery death! John Henson was born in Keyworth Nottingham about 1809, married to Sarah from Wysall Nottingham. Sarah died March 1872, and was a widowon the 1871 census, so I know he died before then. He was alive in 1861, the census described him as a glove framework knitter. I sent for a death cert for a John Henson 1864, but it's the wrong one. I've searched all the indexes, and ancestry, but no luck. I'd be delighted if you could have more success than I have! Thanks Lesley
