Thank you keyboard 86.
I am still struggling as in the 1841 census there is a 5 year age gap between William and Jane, whereas in the 1851 census it is only a one year difference.
There is a comment on the 1941 census - a post from Patricia Nichols64, as follows:
William Woodward on 1841 census in civil parish of Wolfhamcote was not born in Flecknoe. He came from Rutland see 1851 census. The William Woodward who was born in Flecknoe is in Hanslope Bucks on the 1841 census.
How do I determine what is correct?
Many thanks

I am trying to find the parents of Isaac Woodward born 1838 in Flecknoe Warwickshire. There are 2 sets of potential parents in different census documents. 1841 census - William & Jane Woodward with children Emanwell, Mark,Ester, ISIAH,Emma. 1851 census - William & Jane Woodward with children Mary,ISAAC, Emily,Charles, James, Hannah. Which is the correct family?

My information is that David Bowen was born in 1815 in Llandeilo Fawr and died 21 Jan 1879 in Alfreton, Derbyshire. Buriel 25 Jan 1879. He married Sarah Palethorpe 30 Nov 1837. She is in the 1851 census. Last year I viewed one of his clocks which is with a collector.I have copies of his will and death cert.
His father was Owen Bowen. 1781 - 1851. Baptised 30 May 1781 in Llandeilo. His wife was Mary Thomas 1777 - 29 Oct 1874. He was a shoemaker in the 1851 census. His grave stone is legible.
His father was David Bowen, born 1744 in Llandeilo. His will is available. His wife was Joan - I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HER MAIDEN NAME.
David's parents could be David Bowen and Hannah Davis but I do not have any source documents to support this.
BACK TO DAVID BOWEN IN ALFRETON - his son Alfred David Bowen was born 19 Nov 1848 in Alfreton, baptised 5 Oct 1849. He died 2 Feb 1918 in Fort Hill, Transkei, Eastern Cape, South Africa. He left from Southampton on 25 Nov 1875 for the Cape. He kept a detailed daily diary which is held in the Grahamstown Museum in the Cape. He married Caroline Georgina Smith 17 July 1883 in the Transkei. She was born 14 Nov 1860 and died 30 Dec 1950.
Their son Hugh Charles Bowen was my grandfather.

I am trying to determine the parents of William Pittard. He was born c1774 and died in 1848 in Kingsbury Episcopi in 1848. His wife was Jane Kenshole. They were married in 1804. I am finding alternative parents for William, either William Pittard and Margaret Moore, or Thomas Pittard and Susanna Street. I have been unable to find a baptism certificate to get clarity. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your prompt and very helpful responses.

Somerset / Grace Pittard
« on: Saturday 31 January 15 05:01 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to confirm the date of birth of Grace Pittard. She married William James Nurton in 1845. The 1861 census has her born in Kingsbury in c1822 (based on her age). The death of Grace Nurton in 1895 has her born in Chard in 1818 (based on her age).
It would also be very helpful if I could find a baptism or birth certificate confirming her parents.
Many Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I got the enlistment information from the online summary. Where in London are the attestation forms?
