Hi Woodyw,

There are 2 Henry Croft's born 1863 March on the 1881 census, one an Ag lab in March and one a clogger in Lancashire   :-\

Going back to 1871, this is the likeliest match I can see:
RG10/1611 89 23
March, Cambridgeshire

Betsey Crofts, head, 27, mar, lab, b. March
Harry, son, 8, scholar, b. do.
George Crowden, visitor, unm, 23, lab, b. do.

I did a lot of work on Betsy Croft and the Crowden family a couple of years ago - she married George Crowden and they were the ones who were in Lancashire in 1881, with son Harry 18, clogger.  By 1891 she was a widow, and appeared in the census as Betsy Croft with son Harry whose age was only 22 but born in March, and unmarried.

So if Harry Croft married in 1882 and was in Warboys in 1891 then by a process of elimination it must have been the other Harry.

Regards

David

Both are named HENRY on the 1881 censis - it that why you can't find them?

They should pop up immediately when you do a search  ???
