I wonder if anyone can do a look up on the 1871 census for me, for a John Houghton born about 1798 and Matilda Houghton wife born about 1829. son Albert Houghton born 1867 They lived in the Southampton area Hampshire, in 1881 it says Matilda was a widow so I was wondering if he was alive in 1871. Thank you very much I know its a bit of a cheek asking but I have noticed a lot of other people asking for look ups. Thank you very much Debbie
