1851 Census Leicester
« on: Wednesday 26 November 08 15:45 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to trace Richard Johnson (born c1800/01 Lutterwoth, Leics) and his wife Frances (born  c 1806) on the 1851 Census for Leicester.  I suspect he will appear in the Leicester Census  rather than Leicestershire.  Is it also possible to find out who else is living in the household?  I am new to this so not sure what info is available.  Grateful thanks for any help!

Richard Johnson 50  Head Brush Maker Lutterworth
Frances Johnson 45  Wife Hinckley
Thomas Johnson 19  son Apprentice to Carpenter

welcome btw - the gap in kids ages may be filled by an 1841 search - maybe Thomas is the only lad who stayed at home ...

Very many thanks for the super quick information, I really am most grateful.  As Richard & Frances were married in 1829 and had two children in quick succession (one of whom died, the other being Thomas) I too had been wondering about the gap.  This has not solved it but there may have been a John born in 1841 or who had not been born by the time of the Census.  I do have the 1841 Census and he does not figure (so may have also died).  Also, I suppose that there could be  a child/children) who were away from home at the time of the Census.  George aged 3 is my 2 x Great Grandfather.  High Cross Street would also be correct.  I am trying to confirm a connection to the Consanguinitarium in High Cross Street which was built by John Johnson, an architect, born Leicester but who went to London (he was also County Surveyor for Essex).  I do know from now deceased family members that there is a family connection but I have not unravelled it as yet.  Again many thanks.
