ChristinaS Report 16 Apr 2013 17:21

I see on the 1891 census that 3 New Inn Yard is listed as a warehouse, with no occupants! Very strange.

Do you have the actualy birth certificate, with his mother's maiden name on?


LadyKira Report 16 Apr 2013 23:34

I did some research on another family on this road
It is tiny.
I seem to remember there was a fair bit mistranscription around the address.
I will have another look.
