Looking for a Harry Handley b 1867/8. Parents were Thomas b 1836 Birmingham and Mary b 1838 Cheshire. I have Harry in 1881 but would like to find him and his family in census's back to 41. Harry marries in 1899 in West Derby.
Any help much appreciated

Very difficult to find the family in 1871 (even having looked at the details from 1881)
1861 Thomas is a boarder in Birmingham, unmarried and a printer compositor
1851 census there are two Thomas Handleys both aged 15. This is the printer

HO 107 2055 folio 107
Court? 8 Suffolk Street Birmingham  Warwickshire   
Elizabeth Handley 50 Birmingham, Warwickshire, Head  Married Weaver
Mary Handley 21 Birmingham, Warwickshire,  Daughter 
Elizabeth Handley 20  Birmingham, Warwickshire, Daughter   
Thomas Handley 15  Birmingham, Warwickshire, Son  Printer

1841 census HO 107 1142/5 folio 49 Page 23 (adult ages to nearest lower 5)
Edgbaston Street St Martin  Warwickshire
Thomas Handley 35   Not born Warwickshire Web Weaver
Elizabeth Handley 35  Warwickshire
Mary Handley 12  Warwickshire
Elizabeth Handley 10  Warwickshire
Thomas Handley 6  Warwickshire
Ann Handley 2  Warwickshire

Marriages Jun 1861
Handley  Thomas     Birmingham  6d 116   
Potts  Mary     Birmingham  6d 116

1861 lots of Mary Potts of about the right age born Cheshire (she changes her birth from Macclesfield on the 1891 census to something like Butley and Prestbury in 1901). If this is the correct marriage for the couple you will probably need the information on Mary's father to help narrow the census search down.

I do not know about the Potts marriage. I have seen it but put it in the maybe pile. 51 looks close enough. Many thanks for your time and help
