The two census records you give have Henry born in Exeter Devon not Bristol Gloucestershire.

One public tree I looked at has him dying in 1857 but I think they are looking at a death for a William Henry Westcott in Exeter and he is aged 2.

Thank You crisane,

My apologies, of course you are absolutely correct that I referenced him to Gloucestershire and not Devon.   I blame increasing age, tinged with a large amount of stupidity.

Anyone else reading this post should concentrate on Exeter, Devon, please.

I shall transcribe this post to the Devon board tomorrow
