Could anyone do a look up for me please. I need to find Henry Howard occ shoemaker, age abt 35 (or could even be 45 - differs in each census). His wife is called Mary Ann and he has at least one son called Francis who would be 11 in the 1861 census. He could be found in Barton St Mary but was living in Wooten in 1851. He was born in Paignton Devon. Any info on him and his family in 1861 would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!! Caroline
