1851 Census - Ledbury COMPLETED THANKS
« on: Tuesday 17 January 06 23:01 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

Researching the Wheel/Wheale/Weal & Variants of Ledbury.
In 1841 John Wheel & his wife Mary both listed as being 70
were living at Homend plus a James Wheel also aged 70. I don't have a definite birth year for John or Mary but feel
they could have been a few years younger than the listed age. Could someone please check to see if they are still alive in 1851.
Thanks,
Hinton.

Hello Susan,
It`s good enough for me. It looks very much like them.
I`m pleased to see that they've "lived a while".
I had never been able to trace their birth places.
Their boarders sound interesting as well, maybe even
related.
Thanks very much.
Hinton.
