Surname Biikby - Nah! COMPLETED
« on: Sunday 08 October 17 15:35 BST (UK) »
The writing must be difficult to read. I think that Robert and Jane Biikby, living with Jane Snailham, in the FamilySearch 1861 census are Robert and Jane Bibby. Can someone please confirm.
Strangely, Jane is listed as a lodger when I believe she is the daughter of Jane Snailham.
Also, Robert's birthplace is listed as Baston. Could this be Barton near Claughton?
Also, Robert is listed as unmarried and Jane listed as married.

Is this it in Preston Lancs

This is how ancestry have transcribed it

Jane Snailham 58 born Catterall
Jane Bibley 28 born Penwortham
Robert Bibley 30 born Preston Lancs

Robert has a ditto for status meaning married same as his wife above.  Not u for unmarried.
Marriage 13 Jun 1859 Preston
Bibby Robert
Snailham Jane

She may have been her daughter but lodging rather than living there permanently so put down as lodger.

I would hazard a guess that Robert and Jane are Bibby, and that Robert was born Preston.  Dreadful writing!
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
