Hello:
The Miles surname occurs so frequently that I've had difficulty sorting through the BMD indices and narrowing down the entries to our family line.  I am hoping to find 1891 census entries for our great-grandmother's brothers:
- Henry Miles, born 1848 at Clayton, Sussex
- William George Miles, born 1851 at Keymer, Sussex
- George Miles, born 1853 at Keymer
- Richard Miles, born 1855 at Keymer
- Frank Miles, born 1859 at Lindfield
Could someone help, please? and many thanks for any consideration.
Regards,
Alison Causton

Thank you for these, Chris.  Your first post includes an elusive cousin, rather our Grandad's first cousin:  Frank, with whom he corresponded right through 1980.  Frank was also a band leader, apparently ;-).
There were some unexpected individuals in the other posts, too, comparing them with 1901 census results.
Many thanks again,
Alison
