HI,

Thankyou so much for the look-up. I am sure this must be the James's I am looking for as his father's name I know was John.
Regards Carol.

circus folk are not on the normal census records as they where classed travellers so they had a seperate census done which includes fairground gypse hawkers and general travelleres

Lorraine

I didn't know that! How do you access these? Do you have any Mills families in your records - a William & family, with Smiths appear, as mat makers in one census I have
