Greeting’s Again John…… Sorry but there are NO Thomas TOMKINS within the age range you’ve given On the 1851. Census for the City of Leicester. The only persons coming from Northamptonshire on this Census are as follows:- Sarah TOMLINSON. Widow. 80. Born Daventry. Chris TOMLINSON. 18. App. Born Kettering. Samuel TOMKINS. 52. F.W.K. Born Kettering. John TOMKINS.59. Supper Invalid. Born Kettering. I’ve not attempted the 1841. Census as this will involve trawling Through some 40 Folders each with 50 pages and 50 names per page. Which would amount to a weeks work and that’s only for the City only. And the information given on these early Census will only give:- Name. Age. Occupation of Head, and weather born within the County or not. So if we do find a Thomas (NOT born within the County) we’ll not know If it's for Northamptonshire or not …… MIKE.

Mike, again many thanks for your time and effort. Cannot understand why Samuel TOMKINS appears on the 1851 and his first son Thomas 1820 does not ?, is St George's within the City boundary?. Regards Jon

Greeting's Again John.... I wonder if there has been a transcribe error ? On the 1851. Census there is a Thomas TOMKIN aged 31. Living at No. 31 Needle Gate but states born Leicester. Where as Samuel TOMKIN. 52. is living at 57, Needle Gate. states born Kettering Northamptonshire. Needle Gate is definitely in the parish of St. Margaret's. Just wonder if the enumerator or transcriber got carried away and put Thomas down as born Leicester ? And YES the Parish of St. George is within the City Centre. the Church is next door to the Odeon Cinema (Queens Street ) if you can remember that.... MIKE.
