Hi Bev, Just curious as to where you live, I have to confess that although born in Leicester, once my Nan died in 1972 I had no family to stay with in the hols so Leicester is unfamiliar to me now and after moving a bit I am now in Nottingham. Hopefully will relearn Leicester a bit now. Hi Mike Thanks for that, Thomas Powell is the name of Mary Ann Warren's father, is there not a head of the household at no.26 and why does it say visitor 18 mths? (you had better pop 2 prozac) Where do you think Fredrick Warren 3 is ??? No. 26 stays in the family as later this is where the Worris' are looking after William, Susannah and Martha (none of whom have married) and 2 of the Warren children Elaine

Greeting's Again Elaine..... Passes over the big jar of " Prozac's "..... Re:- Visitor 18 Months. In the column " Relationship to Head " = Visitor. In The Column " Age" = 18 Months. JD..... The Family was spead over the two Houses confirmed by the Census oblique slashes \\ = end and start of Houshold. \ = change of surname / or another Familyof the same name within the hosehold. hope that clears that one up ? " Giz us me prozac's back M'Duck " :0))) MIKE.

Hi Mike Hoping to catch you for a look up in 1861 again. Am following my Warrens around and am looking for an Alfred Robinson 25 who maybe married to a Sophia 22, they seem to have taken over the house in Foundry Road, this is the house you found on the 1861 census with 2 families next to each other. They are both from Leicester and stay within St. Margarets parish. Not sure if Sophia is a Powell! Her full name is Sophia Maria, middle name is missed off one census. Elaine
