Let me know if you want them. For some reason couldn't get image for 1871. Long shot - but maybe Samuel Henry's dad was a man called Perkins????

Hi all Bev, spoke to my aunty this morning who is home on a flying visit and it appears my ggrandfather was in India, in 1899 he was a shoe finisher according to his wedding cert but I can only find him on 1881 census. His name was Albert Victor Ward DOB 5-01-1872 born in Leicester. What is the best way to try and find him with this info Thanks, Elaine

Maggie, That's fantastic. Thank you so much..and yes , have thought about the possibility of Perkins being the dad. After all, Samuels name seems a little odd. Have now managed to find Paling(Spelt Paylin!) on 1871 census - with Thomas going back to be a F.W.K...living in Leicester. What a great couple of days!! Thanks for your help... K
