Hi Lunar My Trowell family - in the 1851 census Rebecca is the Head so why do you say husband not at home? Sorry for being thick - haven't been doing this very long. As I see it Rebecca is a widow! Sandy

Hi Sandy Althought Rebecca is the Head in 1851, it also says that she is Married on the image. In 1861 it then says she is Wid (Widowed). That's why I think that her husband is away from home, he could have had to go away for work or was visiting family.

Isobel Clapton appears to be in Somerset or Gloucestershire (there are 2), I wonder if he had ment Clapham which is in London, Sussex and Bedfordshire (there are 3) The Clapham in London is in the district of Wandsworth. This one fits with what he gave on the marriage certificate. Name: Frederick Fox Year of Registration: 1878 Quarter of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar District: Wandsworth County: London, Surrey Volume: 1d Page: 732 Unfortunatly I still can't find Fred on any census, I found a possable one but I don't know how likely it is so I'll let you decide. It is also possable that they left England when Fred was a baby. 1891. Name: Frederick Fox Age: 10 Estimated birth year: abt 1881 Relation: Scholar Gender: Male Where Born: Battersea, Surrey, England Civil parish: Heston Ecclesiastical parish: Heston Town: North Hyde Heston County/Island: Middlesex Country: England Source information: RG12/1025 Registration district: Brentford Sub registration district: Isleworth ED, institution, or vessel: St Marys Orphanage Folio: 135 Page: 22 on the same page (poss a brother) Name: Henry Fox Age: 12 Estimated birth year: abt 1879 Relation: Scholar Gender: Male Where Born: Battersea, Surrey, England

Thanks for the offer, Lunar. Could you look in the 1841-1891 census for Wales for Aladdin Gibbs (possible variants are Ladding Gibbs and Aladen Gibbs)? Occupation is likely to be Knife Grinder. Thanks

Thank you Lunar! Much appreciated. I have also come across a couple of records with variations in the spelling of The Eggington surname (sorry should have mentioned this with my previous message). Cheers Rachel.

Jamie Do you have any idea of when and where Aladdin might have been born as there are a couple of various spellings on the Welsh censuses. As you don't ask for 1901 I wonder if you have that record from GR or National archives. e.g. Aladdin Gibbs 50 Glamorgan Merthyr Glamorganshire Merthyr Tydfil Pedlar In ...Etc

Jamie Report 11 Jun 2006 16:24

I've got the census image for that. he was born in Merthyr Tydfil. I assume his father (also named Aladdin) was born there too. The curious thing is, if he's 50 at the time of the census (1901) that would suggest he was born in 1851. I recently purchased his marriage certificate (where he was known as Ladding) in 1866 and it states his age as 18 - meaning he would have been born in 1848! This 3 year gap intriguies me and so I wanted to track his movements through the census returns and fine out more about hi
