I'll be able to sleep tonight.. can you believe this kept me awake last night worrying that the whole lot was completely wrong and I've have to start again.
Obviously Rootschat does not like acronyms .. I did not say blimey!
Thank you again.

Ha,yes it certainly gets to you at times!

Yes, just checked FindMyPast. There can be little doubt. I don't know the area at all and my history of coal mining there is sketchy .. it was before Arthur Scargill's time, but I get the feeling looking at the Census records that people were fairly poor. So they would go where there was work. But they must have come back.. perhaps to be near family once they had children, though Sarah's mother was already dead.
Both Thomas and Sarah signed with a x, as did both witnesses.
That is a little different from the families in Devon, Southport and Liverpool.. most people could sign their names by the 1860s.

I do hope you might go back further than Thomas Davies Snr.I have a Davies family in Flint in the mid 1700s that needs bringing up to date!

Although the age is a few years out(given born 1840!),could it be Thomas(without Sarah) at 32 Bow Street,Stoke in the 1861 census?
I'll see if I can find Sarah separately.

I'm certainly going to try. I did start that a couple of days ago but lost confidence in the whole family. I'm back on it. There look to be a couple of options, but for some reason, all my searches in Flint/Flintshire lead to rather opaque results. Now of course, I'll have to start on the Parish Registers .. much trickier in a strange area. I'm not sure where most of them except except for the St. Mary's ones.

That could be him couldn't it.. age as you say a little out, but as it was the head of the family who completed the Census for transcription, he might very well not have known exact age of a lodger. Thomas might not have been there to answer for himself.
