1871 Census Lancashire, Wigan - Williams
« on: Sunday 14 November 04 19:06 GMT (UK) »
Hi All

I am looking for my wife's great grandfather who was called Francis or Frank Williams.  This is going to be difficult because not only is Williams a common name but also I cannot be certain where Frank was in 1871.  Most likely he was in Wigan because he got married there in July 1872 when he was just 19 and living in Douglas Bank and working as a coal miner.  At the time of the 1871 census he would have only been 17 years old so he could have still been living at home which was in the Lydney area of Gloucestershire.

I will be very greatful if someone  could look for Frank in the 1871 census.

Thanks in advance.
