1861 census lookup for Sawston, cambridgeshire
« on: Monday 06 December 04 12:40 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I am looking for an Isaac Goodacre who I have found on the 1841 and 1851 census living in Sawston (address Morleys Yard).

I have not found him on any other census since and think this may be because he died in 1862.  The only census I haven't had access to is the 1861 and would be grateful if anyone could check this for me.

His age would have been around 45, birth place Essex and occupation Parchment Labourer.

Interest to see if he had any family, wife etc.

Many Thanks

Sarah

Hi Sarah

Sorry, he doesn't appear in Sawston in 1861, nor was he in Linton Union Workhouse.
Do you have his death cert in 1862, which should give a place of death, and possibly a wife's name if she was the informant?

He may have remarried in 1854 as there is a marriage of Isaac Goodacre in June 1854 in Linton Registration District on FreeBMD. Per the Cambs FHS site what appears to be his first wife Sarah and daughter Caroline both died in 1836.

Regards

David

Do you have full details of the 1841 and 1851 census entries? If not I can let you have them.

Hi David,

Many thanks for looking, I also had found the marriage entry in 1854 and hoped that information from the census would confirm it.. oh well. Haven't got the death certificate so looks like that will be the next step.

I had a look at the CFHS site and see the wife and daughter, v strong possibility it is his first wife as on the details of the census 1851 he is stated as widowed so would fit in. Another avenue to explore so thanks for the lead!

I'd be grateful if you could provide the full details of the 1841 and 1851 census for me.  Also could you check for Isaac parents and family if not to much trouble?

They are: 

Edward 1774
Hannah 1771
John 1796
Lucy 1809

Many thanks

Sarah
