Liverpool census
« on: Saturday 23 January 16 13:25 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone point out where I might be going wrong.

I have an entry for 55 Hopwood Street Liverpool ( a death in 1888) but despite having access to both the 1881 and 1891 censuses I can only find entries for even numbers on that street.

What am I doing wrong

In 1891 try looking for James Jackson b 1847 Liverpool RG12 Piece 2903 Folio 71 Page 5  which should lead to the odd numbers of the street in a different Ed from the evens numbers.  No 55 should be over the page - Stephen Jennings age 40 b Ireland and family

In 1881 look for Jane Mc Nee b 1840 Isle of Man with husband James who are living at 55 Hopwood St
RG11 Piece: 3600 Folio: 41 Page: 10    As in 1891 the Enumeration District included only one side of Hopwood Street.  :)

I searched for the address of FindMyPast which allows for an address search

Thanks again. No new information but always adds additional detail.


Still no idea of why Henry Shumackers death notice says he died at 55 Hopwood, no idea what they were doing there. Don't know where he and Catherine were in 1881. They obviously liked moving around

Are you sure this is the right death?

There is a Henry Frederick Shumacher  a Cooper married a Catherine Baker 10.4.1878 St Andrew Holborn suggests a birth of c.1855 Father same name a Publican.

There is a death for a Henry Frederick Schumacher 1893 Camberwell birth c. 1855?

Reasonably certain this is the correct death. Wife's name correct and former address given as Glasgow where I would expect them to be.

Do you know when he was born, do you have them on any census, what was his occupation?
