I don't think Edward Medlicott you found in 1861 in the workhouse is the same Edward as in later census

1861 there is a Robert Medlicott age 9 b Church Stretton in the workhouse with Edward - Edward's age has been transcribed as 3 yrs but on image it reads (to me) 13yrs

Both Edward & Robert can be found in 1851 with parents Thomas & Margaret???

there is a birth reg
E Medlicott Jun qtr 187 Clun 6a 499

and a baptism
Edwin Medlicott baptised 5 Mar 1859 Stoke St melborough Salop mother Martha


maybe????

Hi suz & Alberbury,

Thanks so much for your useful info.

suz it looks like the 1871 Census for my Edward must be missing or the family wasn't at home on the night of the census.

Alberbury i'm on it, the links you grateful sent me.

Kind Regards

I agree with Suz that the 1861 age for Edward is 13. There is a baptism at Church Stretton for Edward s/o Thomas & Margaret Medlicott of Minton, Salop on 28 June 1848 which would tie in with this age in 1861.

In 1871 in Tenbury Foreign, Worcs I found: Piece 3039 Folio 117 page 24
George Griffin  head unmar 58 Joiner
Lucy Hughes  widow 53 Dressmaker
Edward Medlicott lodger 22 single  Railway porter b. Minton, Salop

Possibly worth considering in view of his career on the railway and did he knock a few years off his age because Alma Jane was younger than he was? 

Other baptisms at Church Stretton:
1845  Nov 9   Thomas s/o Thomas & Margaret Medlicott of Minton, Labourer
1851  Mar 2    Robert      ditto  of All Stretton

Burial at Church Stretton
1861 May 19  - Robert Medlicott age 10 - was this little Robert from the Workhouse?
