Joseph Bentley lookup suffolk please
« on: Friday 03 September 04 11:25 BST (UK) »
could somebody please help me with Joseph Bentley. He was born c 1838-1936 but we know not where. He was a fisherman living in gorleston on sea, suffolk with his wife louisa but was not listed in the 1881 (the family was listed living at 4 alpha road) or 1901 census. I guess he was at sea or just anti paperwork. He's not listed on the ships in harbour. I've found a Joseph of the right age in the 1851 suffolk census born in Bury but hopefully somebody could find him in the 1891 or 71 to establish a place of birth.

Thanks both of you, especially Nicky. That's definitley G-G-Grandad Joe. Does this mean I'm an honorary cockney :-\? Nobody in the family had an inkling so this is really useful.

Thanks again,
TJ ;D

RG10/1782 ED 3 Folio 85 Page 28 Entry 156
Church Rd Gorleston Suffolk

Louisa Bently Head 21 Fishermans wife b Oulton Suffolk

Kris,

thanks. I don't have any info about louisa at all yet, so that's very useful. I'll try looking at Oulton for the marriage.
