1841 Census - Name Help Please
« on: Tuesday 16 January 18 15:30 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I'm having trouble deciphering the first four names; I think the third would be Francis, and fourth being William but I'm not sure. I'd appreciate any suggestions

TIA

Second one looks like a "Ch" and a "t" so abbreviation for Christopher perhaps?

Be interested to find out what the first one is  ???

Can you say which are male and which are female?

I think it looks like Ch..t (possibly Ch.st), so maybe Christine/Christina, seeing as it's a girlie?

I think the first one could be another Will(iam); the flourish over the letters looks like the rest of the "W". If you look at it like that, then it is almost exactly the same as the "Will" lower down.

Yes I think you're right Karen, what looks like an accent is the flourish over the W that hasn't fully come out.
