1841 census look up please
« on: Thursday 19 March 09 21:32 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

This one could bee difficult, but I'm looking for John Taylor, born abt. 1760 in Astley, Nr. Shrewsbury, Shrops. He will be widowed.  He died in 1846 and his abode at the time was Bings Heath, and he was buried at St. Marys, Astley, so I assume he is in that area in 1841.

Fingers crossed on this one.

Hello Kaz

Is this him on 1841??

@  St Mary  Shropshire

John   Taylor    80                                                        Born in County

Pradell Taylor  60                                                            "          "


Looks like Pradell in female column could it be his daughter?
Does this name mean anything to you, you said he would be a widower.

That's interesting, the area is right and John's age, but I've not heard of Pradell.  I think I'll have to see what I can find, it's a very odd name. Thanks for your help.

Hello Kaz

Had another look at 1841 Census definately listed in Index as Pradell.
Heres reference if you wish to look HO 107/927/10  Page 35
at Ditherington?? St Marys Shropshire.

Also do you have Johns Death Cert it may give some clues as to informant etc of death.   

Do you have late wife's name??

On IGI there is this baptism of a John TaylEr 15th June 1756 mat Astley Shropshire  parents  William and Mary.

What do you think
