Where is Robert Winterbottom LEES (b. 1855 Oldham) ?
« on: Sunday 10 September 17 13:11 BST (UK) »
Robert Winterbottom LEES was born 1855 D in Oldham, Lanc., as son of William LEES and his (second) wife Amelia Winterbottom. I find him in the 1861 census of Oldham (RG09 3009 89 50) as Rod LEES. After that, I do not see him in the census. What happened?

Hi

Is he with his family ? William Amelia, and siblings Mary Ann, Violet, Elizabeth and Eli ?

If so, I think you will find that 'Rod' is actually ASA Lees who was baptised to the couple on 7 Oct 1855 Oldham. I can't see Robert at all.

Are you sure of his parentage?  A Robert Winterbottom LEES was baptised at St Mary's Oldham 19 Dec 1855 son of Daniel and Mary Ann LEES and there are lots of records for him.

It's a bit strange because I can see a Robert Winterbottom Lees born and baptised in Dec. 1855 to a Daniel Lees and his wife Mary Ann, yet his wife as far as I can see wasn't a Winterbottom.

Thank you for your help.

If Rod and Asa are the same person, then that explains why I did not find Asa in the 1861 census (although he was born in 1855) and Rod/Robert not in the 1871 census. I jumped to the conclusion that Robert Winterbottom fitted well because William Lees' second wife was a Winterbottom.

Your explanation has convinced me I was wrong. Thanks again!

Have you got the marriage certificate? If not, it is available on Familysearch
