Hi
Yes 1851 Valley House Leiston
Thomas Smith 34 blacksmith Whenhaston Suffolk
Harriet 26                            Oulton suffolk
Ellen 3                                   all Leiston
Sarah 1
John 3 months
Ann  Writer 16    visitor house servant Oulton

I'm assuming he's the Mar qtr John smith mother's maiden name Wright.

The other two mother's names are Fisk and Finch.

1861 Watermans Passage Kingston Surry
Thomas Smith 40 blacksmith Bramfield
Harriet 35 Oulton
Ellen 13 Leiston
Sarah 11
John 10
Robert 9
Hannah 7
Lydia 5   Kingston Surrey
William 2

1871 Thomas and Harriet and Lydia downwards are still at Bramfield with Thomas 10,Harry 7 Peter 3
No sign of John with them he's working as a butcher in Victoria Road to the Lucy Terry and family also of Leiston. at Kingston on Thames

Can't see him 1881

Fantastic! Thanks to both of you. :)

Any  of the other 2 John Smith present in this census ? Just to be sure. If he is the only one, he is the one I search.
