It's totally irrelevant to the enquiry (so please forgive me Ahmed  :D ) but here is a rather interesting story about Wyboston.

Many thanks all.

I would never have guessed Wyboston, as I have not heard of it before!  :P

I thought it was Pertenhall, because his grandfather was actually born in Pertenhall (assuming I have the right guy).

I am attaching two images, I am quite sure of the same person (as a LOT of other pieces in the jigsaw seem to match), but the birthplace name looks a bit too different for my liking. The first one from the 1851 census I had made out to be Baston in Lincs, but the one from 1871 does not seem to be Baston.

it is always nice to know a bit more about the place that you're looking into.

Thank you!
