1841 census does not give marital status (though there is no possible wife with him)

His occupation was Wholesale Druggist - he was not born in county not were the rest of the 'family'

Others in property
Edward 24
Aaron ? 17
Mary 16
Henry 11

[ As usual, Rosie beat me to it   :'(   ]

In case it adds anything, his son Edward was also listed as a "Wholesale Druggist" ( "do" ) .

Thanks for that Rosie & Ray,

This guy was like chameleon changed his profession all the time but at the time of his daughter's marriage in 1841 he said he was a shoemaker so I guess it's not him?  ??? back to the drawing board.  He did have a son Edward but he was a labourer and on checking think he was born 1833

Thanks again I love this site so helpfull

Good find [Ray]  :)

It's really frustrating when you spend time looking for something only to find you are too late with your reply.  Still it keeps the mind active  ;D

Thank you both on your research.  Elizabeth Evans married Robert Forshaw in 1841 at St Peter's Liverpool.  She was a minor.  She is on the 1841with her husband and then a widow on the 1851, 1861 census with her sister Mary Evans.  On the 1871 census she has her brother Edward living with her born 1834 on this census she is born 1826.

These are from the Lan opc

    Register: Baptisms 1821 - 1822, Page 88, Entry 699

Couldn't find any thing for Mary Evans but think she married Samuel Saunders at St Johnís Old Haymarket  02.10.1863 father John Evans age 27. Lan opc doesn't go this far so was unable to see if it gave any helpful information

John Evan's in Circus Street Shoemaker is right area any way I can find anything else about him (1832 electoral rolls) Shoemaker is what was on his daughter's marriage certificate.

Thanks for your help

Eileen

1830 St. Nicholas,  to Elizabeth Greenhalgh, widow.
March 1834 St. John,  to Margaret Brannan.

There was also Edward Evans, shoemaker. He & wife Rachel had son, Edward baptised at St. Peter 1834.
