As I was doing the ironing, I suddenly remembered Mum talking about childhood neighbours of hers named Forest, who named their sons after.... er.... large wooded expanses.  Don't know if these are the ones, but on the 1901 census for Wavertree we find brothers

Sherwood Forest, 10
Delamere Forest, 5
Waltham Forest, 1

Now taking bets on whether New and Black show up in 1911!

Nice one MR!

On the same theme...

Only one Copse family showing in 1891.

(And I have a Woods - Shrub marriage in my own tree!)

Not strictly a Censuswhack, but 1891 also has the Dead family in Fleetwood, Lancs (there's ONE other Dead in the country, so I can't claim a point!)...  but WHAT an interesting family.

Father, Frederick is a Labourer  Pensioner, born Wiltshire, mother Margaret born Ireland, children born Carlisle and East Indies!  I'd love to know that story!

Oooooh!  Getting really goulish now: only one Skeleton in 1871 :o

Paul,

Maybe the Dead family having such an intreresting travel history decided to name themselves after the town they settled in, Fleetwood, I know it's dead I was born there :o

I'm not sure whether this one qualifies - a biblical tongue twister from 1851 census

ZERRUBBABEL BARRACLOUGH 51 SON IRON MONGER HAWORTH YKS

I wonder if he knew the Bronte sisters?

Hi Margaret and welcome to Rootschat AND to Censuswhack!

I haven;t got access to the 1851 census to verify your entry, but it looks bloomin' interesting enough for me!  I can imagine a scene when his mother is saying "Now get here, our Zerrubbabel, and get those dishes washed!"
