Good Morning Heidi

Thank you for contacting me with the 1861 information. I too wonder whether this is my John, and seeing as how he has the Hodgson name.

However I do have him listed as living with an Aunt in 1861, but having said this, I am now wondering if it is possible for a person who is living between 2 families to be counted twice on the census, because in 1851 (ho107/2326), I found a John Swift Grandson abt 1844 birth Netherton, living in Shitlington with his gran Sarah Swift, which ties in with the 1841 census I was given.

As my geography is really not up too much :(    would the areas for the 1851 and 1861 tie in ?, and is it possible for information to be given twice?

I still cannot locate him in 1871 either.

Your thoughts on this would be most gratefully received.

Marion ( one totally confused Moo) :)

Yorkshire (West Riding) / John Swift born 1842 Greasborough

I am looking for help in breaking down my brickwall.

I have a John Swift born 1842 Greasborough, but I am unable to find him on the 1851 Census.
On the 1861 Census I have him as aged 19 unmarried and living with an Aunt, birth place Bradford. I did manage to trace the Aunt and this is my John Swift.
I am not able to find him in the 1871 census, but I do have a marriage certificate 1872 . The details are as follows :-

5th November 1872 Registrer Office Wakefield
John Swift aged 30, Batchelor, Brickmaker
Residence Netherton in Shittlington
there is a line through Father's name and Surname.
Jane Brook aged 32 Widow same residence Netherton Shittlington
Father George Talbot Labourer deceased.

On the 1881 Census gives him as aged 38, living at fox's Row, Shitlington, with his children Martha Ann and Charles William, Jane's children by her first marriage.
Then in the 1891 Census his children are living with an Aunt and Uncle in Soothill. On his son Charles's marriage certificate 1900 it gives his name as John Hodgson Swift, Bricklayer deceased, but on the 1901 census John appears as a 60 year, old widow , Stone Quarryman living at Bell Lane Ackworth.

Can anyone out there help me find his birth, and John on the 1851,71,91 census.

I would appreciate any and all ideas of where to go from here.

Many Thanks
