I am looking for George Onslow & Caroline (Nee Finegan) in 1861 & 1881 census.

I have them in 1851, 71 & 91, but not in between!!

George was born c 1822, Wapping Middlesex & Caroline 1831 St. George in the East, Middlesex.

Also trying to find if they had any more children that what I have already found -

Caroline 1849, George 1851, Francis William 1853, George 1855, Caroline 1857, Mary 1860, Charles 1870 & Alice 1871.

Any clues??

How many more children did she have that didn't survive??

Other branches of my family had 5 - 10 children and yet most lived. Poor Caroline having so many die.

Yes, I know, mortality rates at the time were high, yet it is still harrowing enough to deal with......

Looks like George initially followed his father as a hairdresser as per on William's baptism, then change occupation

Just out of curiosity, is there a sister called Sarah Rebecca Onslow b1826 also in Wapping?

If so, then she married Francis Finnegan (Fenegan - or whichever spelling it is! ), Caroline's brother.

I'm tracing the Finnegan family forward, but noticed the same Onslow name.
