Joseph Seeley 1824 - 1913 Born in Denmark
« on: Sunday 25 February 18 09:09 GMT (UK) »
I have the UK naturalisation papers (1854) for Joseph Seeley who was born in Denmark in 1824. He is married (to Caroline Eliza Carter, 1822? - 1860, I believe) and has one child, who would be Malvina, born 1853. The addresses on the naturalization papers and Malvina's baptism cert match. ButI can find no birth or marriage certificate for him. The couple are missing from the 1851 and 1861 censuses (in the Marylebone area (some data is missing from these censuses. Joseph puts Marylebone as his birthplace on his later censuses. I have a lot of info on him from 1871 onwards, but cannot find the couple's origins in Ancestry or Find My Past.

If anyone has any access to Danish records and can find any information on him I would be very grateful. Thank you.

This census gives no occupation for Joseph though his wife Ellen has one.
