You can search the 1841 census here http://members.shaw.ca/Jerseymaid/index.html

It's a bit of a fiddle but worth a look.  Watch out for different spellings

Have you seen this site http://www.bucksfhs.org.uk/index.php?option=com_parish&task=display&rec=80&Itemid=120

You can ask for a surname search for a few ús.  Worth a look anyway

You can't trust all the information I'm afraid.

Someone took my tree and put it on Rootsweb and made errors when he did.  Also on Ancestry my ancestor who died in Norfolk in 1851 suddenly re-appeared in USA with another family

There is a printed book on my husband's tree and I have found a couple of errors and a mystery marriage.  I am now doing the wives in this family and part of it is on Rootsweb where I have also found some errors.

I use these trees as a guide but check everything that I can.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Re: Birth Look up - Elizabeth Jackson

Who told you her date of birth.  My Aunt told me her mother's DOB but it was wrong.

What do the censuses say about her age and place of birth

It does cover individual tradesmen but probably not poor ones.

A directory near the time of the marriage would be a good idea.
