Could anyone do a look up for me. I would be extremely grateful for 1861 1851 and 1841 if possible. 1861&1851 as a minimum. I am trying to find father's name or any other family of Richard Jackson born 1833, Barton, living in Preston lancashire. On 1871 he is listed as, Richard b1833 Barton, House Carpenter Catherine b 1824 Ince,Cheshire Elizabeth daughter, aged 13 James son, aged 10 Thomas son, aged 8 I think Richard and Catherine may have married after 1851? They were living in Newton's court , preston in 1871 Thanks in advance for your help
