Wilson Airey Looker b.1866
« on: Tuesday 20 September 16 15:20 BST (UK) »

Hopefully someone may be able to help. I thought I was working with quite a good name, but unfortunately Wilson seems to disappear after the 1881 census. He was born to Thomas and Mary (nee Airey) in 1866 at Brigsteer. I have him on the 1871 census as a 3 year old, and again on the 1881 census where the family is now living at Tonge with Haulgh in what was then Lancashire. Wilson is a labourer at a cotton mill. I haven't been able to find him after this point. I've searched for various spellings of Looker, as well as checking for William Looker (in case his name was enumerated/transcribed incorrectly) but no luck.

Hopefully someone's fresh eyes may find something I've missed!!!
