I am not convinced the 1851 is the same family, places of birth are so way out! ages are good.

1851 HO107 1551 60 2
372 Craster? Street Stepney
John 26 Coal Porter bn Whitechapel
Caroline 20 bn Hants Gosport
Ann 1 daughter bn Shadwell
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Def a different family - as here they are in 1861
rG9 278 149 14
St George in the East

John 34 Lab at foundry bn Whitechapel
Caroline 30 wife bn Gosport
Ann 11
Daniel 9
Susan 7
Caroline 3
John 8 mths   all children bn St George

So that rules out that 1851 family!

But I cant as yet see the other family (John bn Glos) in 1851.
With the gap in ages between Caroline and Harry it is possible of course that this was a second marriage.

Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex

I dont know why you think this
Looks very much as if Caroline (bn about 1850) is Harry's older sister.
There is a John Willis marriage on FreeBMD in Pancras in 1850 which is a possibility, but only one bride transcribed, very annoyingly, and she is not Caroline.

see looking at the 1881 census shows henry willis born 1855, matilda beasley, henry john willis,  caroline willis.

Then right next door it shows john willis 1828 stepney middlesex england as being widowed

And then there is the 1871 (I think we are going over old ground from the other thread now)
of
St Clements Danes
Joshua Willis 43 bn Limehouse
Caroline 43 bn Newnham Glos
Harry 11?17? bn Westmonster St James

with the question of is Joshua the same as James, and is Caroline bn Glos the same as Caroline bn Chelsea in 1861(with John then being bn Glos)

At least you can now rule out that other John/Caroline family with the dtr Ann
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

you and me both, too many john willis's and too many harry willis!!!!!!!

I am looking at the 1861 census shows john willis married to a caroline willis, with a daughter caroline willis age 11, and a harry willis age 6.

Is this the right one or not if so then i will send out for the birth certificate for harry willis today!!!!
and know by next week!

Just need the right page and volume number!!!
Thanks
Sifer

This is getting confusing!!!
