When you say he was 21, what year was that? Have you found him in a census?

Steve, have you the marriage certificate/parish record of the marriage of John to Jane Hartshorn, as I see in 1881 census with Jane and amongst the children a Sarah born c 1873 he is b c 1842, in 1871 he is a John PRIOR 30 Jane 24 Edwin 3 May Jane 1 at Stanton Road, Ilkeston, Basford , Nottinghamshire
Census Ref RG10/34783/33/2

The reason I query this is that there are two John Pryor's b c 1840/2 in Great Dalby, as an example in 1861 census is another John aged 19 occ Carter b Great Dalby working for a John Wartnaby at Cottage, Great Dalby?

The John on the 1861 census as a cowman in Coleorton is 21 born Gt Dalby.

On the 1861 census the enumerator complained about how far spread the homes were and he would do his best :D He seems to have split it up in to area's, Church Town, Farm Town and Moor. John is in Farm Town.

There is a Coleorton Hall where Sir George Howland Beaumont farmed and had 25 farm labourers, perhaps he was employed here?

Hey keyboard
Been a while
On the 1861 it says he's un. Married so this would be the same man before he married Jane we were looking to find out we're he was at the time farming. He with a chap called lishman so it should be to hard to find him.

I know I have every thing else on the family just I found this .
