Place of birth on 1851 Census, fresh eyes please
« on: Sunday 22 January 06 16:13 GMT (UK) »
Reference is 2063 41 3

I'm trying to work out where Joseph Goode was born.

H****ley?

The Census area is Over Whitacre but I can't find anywhere locally that fits. My best guess so far is Ansley but written as Hansley on the Census.

Any more suggestions please?

Hi,

I read it as Hearsley, but can't find anywhere of this name in Warwickshire.

The first letter of the birthplace does not look his other 'H's'. It is more ornate and could be a 'K'. I read it as Keresley which registers in Foleshill

Do you have him on 1861 at all?

I think I'll see if I can find anything for Keresley, a baptism or other Goodes on the Census from the area.

Thanks for your interest and I'll keep the other possibilities in mind if Keresley doesn't look good.
