And....

This looks like the same family in the 1861 census. RG9; Piece 761; Folio 127; Page 4

George Russell 34
Elizabeth 32
Ann 9
Eliza 7
George 5
Charles 2

Birthplace here for George Sr is Berks Windsor and for the rest Berks Dedworth.

You might check if your local public library subscribes to Ancestry Library Edition. This would give you access to most records including images. However, there is no access to trees, if I remember correctly.

Can anybody please confirm the identity of these two deaths
Green, Henry, 39,  Windsor. 2c 311

Deaths Sep 1899   (>99%)

Green,  Henry,  38,  Windsor,  2c 301Of

I am pretty sure that one of them was living with Mary nee Russel and Baby Elizabeth at Battersea in 1901 and would like to know more about the other

Hi there  :).

Might be a bit difficult to be living with Mary and Elizabeth in 1901 if one is deceased?

Can you give more info about Mary? Is her last name Green also? Year of birth and place? Same for little Elizabeth?

Were Mary and Elizabeth aware that they had a ghost living with them?

Do you mean 1891? (Henry, Mary and Elizabeth in Battersea)

Here is a cut and paste of the relevant post
Possible for 1891 census:
18 Brittania Place, Battersea

Henry Green  Head  Mar  27  Horse keeper  bn Shrops, Oswestry
Mary Ethel Green  Wife  Mar  26  bn Berks, Windsor
Elizabeth Ethel Green  Dau  1  bn Berks, SLough
Elizabeth Russell  mother in law  wid  62  Living on own means  bn Berks Windsor
Albert Harry Russell  son in law  single  28  carman  bn Berks, Windsor
RG12; Piece: 435; Folio: 83; Page: 28

I have searched BMD but can find no evidence of him.

By the transcription of this record on Ancestry someone has made the comment that Albert Harry should be Herbert Harry they say the original record was incorrect. Might be worth looking for a Herbert.

If so, we have already suggested that you try this death cert to kill him off:

Sep 1899: Green    Henry    35    Wolverhampton    6b   392

Thanks for your help. :)

GH Wolverhampton would fit well with what I have got. I thought that I had my tree looking pretty smart. That was until I spilled some coffee on the keyboard of my computer. Though looking on the bright side, the stuff that I have makes more sense.  The problem might be due to my sloppy note taking or faulty maths.
Happy Christmas everybody.

How can I find if William Kirtland was born about 1806 had any siblings?
He is conected with somebody who was born at Charlton on Otmoor 1796ish.
