1871 Census Look Up
« on: Thursday 19 January 06 14:07 GMT (UK) »
Would it be possible for someone to look at the 1871 census for me.  I'm trying to find a Joseph Asbury (born 1818) and family in Herts.  I think the location may well be Whitwell or St Pauls Walden.

Thanks very much.

A friend, with a passion for collecting mementos has purchased an old framed photo (date 18xx or early 1900's ?) depicting one elderly gent,  a younger one, plus a lad next to a cart that carries the name of J Asbury Whitwell complete with collie dog on top of the load which is covered by canvas. Could the load have been shoes ?  There are rabbit's carcass hanging at rear of cart (payment for shoes ?)
He has no connection with the Asbury family. Would you have any knowledge of this photo ? the frame also contains a decent pencil drawing of this photo that also seems to be old. Bob.

Why not scan it and post the copy?
