Devon Lookup Requests / 1871 Census Lookup Devon - SIMPSON
« on: Wednesday 08 August 07 00:20 BST (UK)  »
Hi - New user, first post.  Great to find this site since all my maternal ancestors are from England and Scotland.

John Simpson, Royal Marines, is in 1881 & 1891 Hereford census.  Wife is Sarah and 6 kids from 1867-1885.  First two kids (Bertha "Annie" and Jessie Louisa) born 1867 & 1869 Plymouth, Devon according to BMD.  Next child not born until 1874 (Wiltshire).

"Annie" my grt grandmother always claimed to be born shipboard en route India, where they lived several years.   If this is true then Jessie probably b. India, and the family would NOT be in 1871 census.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Nick
