I have 1881 Census info - I am trying to find out if there was another child, perhaps not listed on 1881 Census. 1881 - lists William Brooks, age 39, born Middlesex (1891 Census justs states London) Sp - Sarah Brooks, age 34, Daughter - Sarah - age 18, Emily age 15, Elisa age 10, James age 7, Mary Ann age 4 and Ada - 2 months. I have been told there was a son named William, that he enlisted in the War in India, caught Malaria and came home and died at an early age. Any help with 1871 look up would be appreciated Thanks Penny
