Thankyou for your help Judi, I already had that census information from 1851. Sorry I should have made my message a little clearer.  I am particularly interested in John pre 1851 particularly where he lived in Shifnal and his family. His marriage etc.

There is a look up exchange for Shifnal  ( Pauline Pickering)

http://www.faulkes.co.uk/lookup/salop.htm.

May be worth asking for a lookup for John Smith
