Cambridgeshire Completed Lookups / Re: 1851 Census - Fisher
« on: Tuesday 15 November 05 20:42 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks very much David.

Looking at the 1841 info it is likely that the younger John is the son of Mary.

It is possible that John lied about his age on his marriage certificate and on the Census's as his wife is 8 years younger than him.  Although as is occupation is Policeman I'm sure it wouldn't lie about his age(?).

It would be nice if I could find him on the 1851 census (i've looked at all the John Fishers on Ancestry and the CFHS) or his birth on CFHS/IGI (although looking at the 1851 census it appears that quote a few John Fishers are not on CFHS) but it appears he's just elusive (best bet for birth is probably 1817at Ely Wesleyan Church).

Anyway, thanks once again for your help.

Sorry, I don't have any additional information.  I was hoping one of the George Fishers would be a jobber. 

I have been on the Cfhs site but unfortunately it does not give occupations.  I am really struggling with this as the only info I have is that John Fisher was born at Wimblington in 1826/27 (he was 32 when he got married in 1859 and was 34 on 1861 census 44 on 1871, 54 on 1881 and 64 on 1891 - on all he gives his birthplace as Wimblington, Cambs although he is living on all the census's in Lincs) and i cannot find him anywhere on the 1851 Census. 

John also does not seem to appear on the IGI/CFHS for births in 1826/27.

As stated his father on his marriage certificate is George who is a jobber ?

Looking for a George Fisher in 1851 Census.  I think he would be living in or around Wimblington.  According to his son's (John) marriage certificate in 1859 his occupation was a jobber.  Any help would be much appreciated.


PS what is a jobber?

Thanks Jane.

Trying to find my ggGrandfather.  I know he was born in Wimblington in Cambs in 1827.  I can find him in 1861/71/81/91 but can't find him in 1851.  Guess this isn't him either but thanks for the info.

There is a John Fisher living in King's Lynn in 1851 Census who was born in Cambridgeshire.  Could someone please tell me where in Cambridgeshire he was born and who he was living with in 1851.

Thanks very much.  I'd found Thomas in 1841 + 1861 but just couldn't find him in 1851 (Was looking in Bourne not Boston!).  I've no idea where Bowes is though?

Also need t find out if Lawrence re-married and when Mary died.

And also for Lawrence Chamberlain (born 1775?) in 1851 Census.

Thanks John. 

I had him in 1841 and he's back in Pinchbeck for 1861 (and married in Pinchbeck in 1854) but I couldn't find where he was hiding in 1851!

Looking for James Love in 1851 Census.  He was born in 1828 in Pinchbeck, Lincs and he was somewhere in Northants in 1851.  Any help would be appreciated.
