« on: Wednesday 08 September 04 14:02 BST (UK) »
Hi, can someone check the Cambs census returns for 1851/61/71 for John Rycraft or any other Rycraft living in the area during these censuses. Most likely Whittlesey, possibly the Dog & Doublet pub in Northside. Thanks.

Here's the 1861:

RG9/1046 folio 85 (just a few pages from the end of Whittlesey)

Whittlesey North side North bank (this was just a few pages after the Dog and Doublet district)

John Rycraft Head Mar 64 Molecatcher
Lucy Rycraft wife Mar 65 Grocer
Elizabeth Rycraft dau Unmar 31 dressmaker
Griffin Rycraft son Unmar 21 ag lab

same page, 2 families later

Bassenhally Moor

Reuben Rycraft Head Mar 34 farm bailiff
Ann Rycraft Wife Mar 33 bailiff's wife
William Rycraft son 12 ag lab
Lucy Rycraft dau 9 scholar
John Rycraft son 3
Reuben Rycraft son 1

All born Whittlesey

Wish I had a molecatcher in my family! It would make a nice change from ag lab!

Just to complete the 3 years you requested:
1851 (an index is searchable on the excellent Cambs Family History website at  http://www.cfhs.org.uk/Search.html

Arnolds Lane Whittlesey
Lucy Rycraft servant 16 born Whittlesey in the household of John Peed solicitor

Almshouse St Whittlesey
Ann Rycraft servant unmarried 28 born Spalding in household of William Drake, farmer

Not sure where the others who were on the 1841 had gone in 1851, perhaps they were just missed.
