Mabel thats brilliant.
Any chance you could post a hyperlink to that site? Felix is a bit of a mystery man. On census records he gives his place of birth alternately as Liverpool or Newry. He died in a work house in Liverpool in 1910 after previously staying with his daughter Minnie Ethel in the city. He appears in several trade directories for Brecon and Didcot but I have failed to find a birth record for him.
Cheers

Got to http://newspapers.library.wales/home and put "felix golden" [including the inverted commas] to do a phrase search on his name.  some of the hits will be in Welsh, but all 3 stories I mentioned are ther in English

In his bankruptcy he's a Hairdresser, Perfumer, Cigar and Pipe Dealer, and Fancy Warehouseman

Thanks Mabel,
That looks like a certainty.
Maybe a hairdressers college.

On the subject of Eliza and Elizabeth Preece. Is this a coincidence or family tradition. There is an 1841 census record for a Preece family in Allensmoor Hereford.
John Preece 41 Shoe M
Elizabeth Preece 31
Mary 12
Eliza 10
Elizabeth 7
Thomas 6
John 5
Emma 1
Also in Allensmoor in 1841 is a John Preece Shoe M born 1761.
I haven't found an 1841 census records for the couple John Preece 1808 and Elizabeth 1813.
