Whats his surname?
« on: Tuesday 17 March 09 12:53 GMT (UK) »
i've included the name above the one  i want so you have a little something to go by,

John   ??? who??



This is another one i'm transcribing as a practice.  I put Hancock but it was wrong. the " Clue" i was given was "Horrocks is the cotton manufacturer but I said " the n needs replacing with a double letter, sounds similar to a Lancashire cotton manufacturer"."

I would have said Hancocks.
The second letter of the surname is an "a" surely?

Fitty

Not sure what you're transcribing but there is a John Harcocks, b. 1815 on the 1851 for Lancashire.

But it looks like Sharrocks on the census image  ::)
