Hi, I've started a separate thread for 1851 so that I can do them all together instead of keep switching census'. Areas covered are Antrim, Ireland. Scotland, Wales and England. Please note I really need the area in the county where they would be living at the time to search. Places of birth are needed if possible just for elimination. The more info the better. Also I only have partial indexes so it can be hit and miss. I cant search by addresses or folio numbers. Laurie

Hi Deb, Do you know what county and area if possible they'd be living in? Laurie

Hi Kelly, Where would he be living in 1851? Laurie


Unknown Report 7 Aug 2004 13:35

Hi Laurie, You will be absolutely inundated with this thread !! from folks who just don't know where rellies could have dissappeared to in 1851 !! like me ! Searching for James Shawcross born 1825/26 in Manchester? ... in 1841 he was 15 so in 1851 he would be 25 (maybe 26) and I believe he would have stayed in Lancashire. Hope this is enough for you to search with ...? Thanking you so much Elaine :-)

Please can you look for Elijah Palfreyman and his wife Margaret.He was born in 1799 in Birkenhead. I don't have her date of birth but they married in Manchester .Their children were Elijah born 1827 in Birkenhead William born 1834 in Birkenhead Charles born 1830 in Liverpool Harriet born 1831 in Liverpool and Mary Ann born 1837 in Birkenhead. The surname is sometimes spelt Palfryman or Palfreeman or any variation!!Thanks.


Rebecca Report 7 Aug 2004 14:15

Hi Laurie, Could you see if you can find Michael Parfett, born (c)1792 for me please? He died in 1852 in Portsea, Hampshire so I`m presuming he was there in 1851; I know he wasn`t in Hastings, which was his other favourite haunt! He should be with his wife Rebecca, born (c)1794 in Portsea. I`m not sure where he was born I`m afraid, but there`s a chance it may have been Wiltshire. Many thanks Rebecca


Laurie Report 7 Aug 2004 14:26

Hi Elaine, So far nothing, there are Shawcross' in Lancs but where I don't know. I've looked in Salford, Ancoats, Hulme and London Rd, Manchester. If I don't get back to you by 4pm will get back to you on Monday as I'm in Oxford all day tomorrow. If you have any idea where he could be let me know. Laurie
