Thank you Pauline J the 2 census records are 1891 Bedlington where he is under Bessford and Bestford. I think that the correct family is Bessford with Julia Boddy as Alas (Alice) Cuell was Julia Boddys daughter and was staying with William, George and Thomas Bestford in the 1911 census. I think Restford, Bessford is just a mistake but I cannot find any information about Williams parents or any marriage certificates . I have gone back with the wrong family with George and Jane Bestford
(besford) any help would be appreciated .

Sorry, but to be sure which (other) 1891 record you are considering, provide the reference(s).
I gave the refs for 1891 with Julia in an early reply. FS is playing up for me at the moment

Is this the one you are looking at?
