Thank you safc, that's brilliant.

Thank you ArgyllGran - The census you've posted above is the Uncle and cousins of my Edward. In 1871 his father Thomas was living with his wife Ann (Goss) at no.10 North Bridge, Exeter. It's another one of those families where they all have children with the same names.
