Ahmed

Can you give me the reference number of the Census you got it from please? The reason being as it is easier to compare with other letters.

Many thanks Wendy and Carol. Yes, it is definitely Dunholme!  :)

That was a great picture of a corn farmer. I am trying to establish, would a corn farmer have been relatively rich?

Thank you.
