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?

Thank you tris1120 this looks like the family that Julia Boddy (Bessford) married into.
1871 William Boddy age 29 is a Widr, Hairdresser, living in St James, Clerkenwell born c 1842 Scotland fits into the timeline of 1871-1876 when Julia married him and the right area but cannot find any information of marriage etc for William Boddy or William Bestford (Bessford)which may or may not help in finding the parents of william Bestford (Bessford).
