1861 or 1871 Census lookup for Currie
« on: Thursday 02 February 06 19:23 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I am trying to locate the upbringing of an ancestor, Annie Maria Currie.  She was born on Corfu, Greece to Alexander Currie and his wife (name unknown) while Alexander was stationed there with his regiment.  The approximate birthdate for Annie is 1858 or so.

I have conflicting information regarding Alexander's birth, either that he possibly was born in Ireland or Canada.  However, Annie definitely grew up on IOM, so my conjecture is that her mother was from there.  Also, Annie's first husband was William Kewin(Keown?) Corrin, probably from IOM although they married (1879) and lived in Liverpool.

Does anyone have information regarding this family?  I am hoping that they show up in either a 1861 or 1871 census or somesuch.

Thanks!

That's what it says, unfortunately it could also mean that the enumerator just didn't check very well and dittoed down everybody, or else maybe the head of the household gave all information and didn't know any better.

Can find no trace in 1861.
