Could you follow the link please:

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/records/image/e1841image/268514?scheduleid=0&searchhistorykey=11053358&surname=tanner&forename=jane&fulfillmentproviderkey=0

The bit I’m looking at is the three entries -2nd 3rd and 4th from the bottom of the right hand page.
The transcripts show them to be

Jane Tanner 11yrs Born 1830
Edmund Tanner 9yrs Born 1832 and
Albert Tanner 6yrs Born 1835.

But where are the adults? From the layout it certainly seems like a separate unit and not a continuation of the family above I’ve tried Googling the location and it doesn’t appear to be any sort of childrens’ home.

Any ideas or do I write it off as an error by the people doing the census back in 1841.

Thanks

Terry

1841 for parents and Emily????

TANNER, Charles M 40 1801
TANNER, Esther F 30 1811
TANNER, George M 15 1826
TANNER, Emily F 0 (4 months) 1841 Surrey

Piece: 1049
Book/Folio: 4/4
Page: 1
Registration District: St Mary Magdalen Bermondsey
Civil Parish: St Mary Magdalen Bermondsey
Municipal Borough:
Address: Bermondsey Street, St Mary Magdalen Bermondsey
County: Surrey

The original states that Charles is a Fire Escape Conductor and Toll Collector.

Note:
In the 1841 Census a policy of rounding down ages was in place. As such, people aged:

15-19 were recorded as 15
20-24 were recorded as 20
25-29 were recorded as 25
30-34 were recorded as 30
35-39 were recorded as 35...and so on

Thank you -
although how you managed to translate the original is beyond me -and it also explains some of the age disparity's I've been hitting

May I just point out that the vast majority of people on here do NOT use GR records, so your link would be inaccessible to them

Most use FMP or Ancestry...............
