Fresh eyes needed. 1861 census
« on: Sunday 21 January 18 16:17 GMT (UK) »
Hugh Perch born Barbados c 1818.
I have him in all census from 1841 to 1881 except 1861.  From 1851 on he is with members of the Williamson family.
He died unmarried in 1886.
 I just can`t find him in 1861.   ???

Where was he normally resident as there are quite a few missing pieces in the 1861

Here's the  list:

Scroll down to missing pieces.   There were parts of pieces missing too. It's a nightmare to find out about them!

I bet he was in Islington,  because I can`t find Alfred either.

1851 Islington,
Elizabeth Williamson widow 67 householder b Warrington
Alfred L Williamson unm son 31 watchmaker finisher b Liverpool
Elizabeth Williamson unm  dau 25 b Liverpool
Hugh Perch visitor unm  34 planters son b Barbados.

In 1861 Hugh is missing, he is not with Elizabeth, she  is in Twickenham as a vistor
In 1871 Hugh is at Hobkin Ground, West Broughton, Lancashire.
