1901C LANGFORD/STENSTON in Langport
« on: Monday 07 January 08 12:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Can SKS help, please?

I have Henry William STENSTON marrying Elizabeth Ann Baker Sept 1880 Langport 5c 599. One of their siblings was Percy John STENSON (note change of spelling) who was born Mar 1895 Langport 5c 390. Percy John went on to marry as Percy John LANGFORD, Sept 1914 Langport 5c 653 to Eva Woodland. Percys death was recorded as STENSON.

I'd really be interested to find Henry William and Elizabeth Ann on the 1901C census, with Percy and any other siblings. But I have spent hours looking for them, without any luck. I have scoured for all 'Percys', all 'Henrys'. all 'Elizabeths', all 'Stensons', all Stenstons', and 'Langfords'. A complete blank.

Can SKS have a look, please?
Stenson, anywhere any dates

Hi Sister Jane,

No that's it. No ages, no occupations, no birth record found for henry/Elizabeth, no known siblings, not found on any censuses. Nowt! It's driving me nuts!!!

Hi,
Many thanks.

All I can say is that this lot are a nightmare. I'll take a look at the indexes and see if I think that there's likely to be a fit. If not, I'll look for siblings of Henry William, and, if necessary, get back to the board for help.

For now. Thanks

Hi again Nigel

I had a look for Henry William in the 61/71 cencus but couldnt see him although in 71 there is a William H Langford who I think is the same person as the Henry we have given details of

Will have another look.....
