Sussex Lookup Requests / 1841 census look up please
« on: Friday 06 March 20 16:25 GMT (UK)  »

Is it possible for a look up of the 1841 census for Richmond Hill, Brighton?

Mary Welfare was buried in January 1849 aged 77.  Just wondering if she is living with her daughter Ann Leffen and family.

The only Mary Welfare I have found on the 1841 of the right age was in an Institution!

Thank you

Thank you for the link to the site you posted which concentrated on the children and subsequent families who we have details of.  Mark posted the appeal on my behalf trying to help.

It is John we are trying to find details of, i.e. birth, marriage.

As you can see from the link he has been a brickwall for at least 25 years.

His occupation given on Robert and Mary's birth book seller/canvasser.

On Ann's birth and on his death certificate he is a Labourer.

Yes we have Philadelphia living with her daughter Ann Carlie/Carley in 1871.  We have her death in 1881.

No marriage to John and no 1841 census entry.

The children were:-

Charles not found a birth, but born approx, 1842/3.  Married 1866.  Died in 1901

Robert born 1844.  Married 1865.  Died 1915.

Mary who was born and died in 1847.

Ann born 1848 just before John died.  Married 1870.  Died 1907.

Have all the birth, marriage and death certificates for the children other than the birth for Charles.

Mother is Philadelphia Mighall/Miles/Mills.

Hi there,

Hoping someone can help with any information on an elusive ancestor John Dignum who died aged 38 in 1848 Whitechapel.   Not found a marriage for John but have details of 4 children, birth certificates for 3 of them.   Not found him on the 1841 census, so don't know where he was born.

Any help or suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks for the replies.

Beginning to think it must be a spelling mistake and therefore should be Pantomimist.

Just come across an ancestor who lists his occupation as Pantomist. 

Nothing coming up on Google.

Anybody any ideas.
