1891 Dartmouth harbour
« on: Monday 31 December 07 23:19 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone able to view the 1891 census be able to search for someone aboard the Royal Navy vessell 'Britannia'. 
The person I am interested in is transcribed by ancestry as
Robert M G Knight age 15 born in Glamorgan.

the ref. is Rg12/1710 folio 192 page 9

My query being:- is there a possibility that the original document could be read as
Robert CHIDGEY (or a variation of that surname)?

I have been unable to find Robert Chidgey with his family on this census, however, he was in the navy for quite a few years.

Thanks Tricia,

Looks as if definitely Knight -  still to find my Robert Chidgey.
Thanks for your time,  and of course, my best wishes of happiness in the New Year.
