1841 look-up please - COMPLETED
« on: Monday 18 May 09 16:56 BST (UK) »
I`m trying to find Thomas James Boardman, a `doctor of music`, who was born in 1812 in Canterbury, Kent.  In 1839 he had a son Henry who was born in Kennington, Surrey and in 1841 another son John was born in Stockwell, Surrey.  I can`t find them on the 1841 census - by 1851 they were in Clapham. (His wife was Sarah Maria)
Many thanks
Jane

Sometimes Mum I swear it doesn't do the reds  :D

Glad we have a consensus, we must have found the right ones

Hi Jane

I actually found them this time on FindMyPast,  they are badly mistranscribed on Ancestry index.  :-\

A little more patience is required in cases like that to find them on Ancestry   :-\

It is usually best to search for one of the children, closest in age to the census  -  Henry b. 1839 Surrey - since there is less room for mistakes, and the 1841 rounding is not in effect  ;)   Leave out the surname, since that is usually the one wrongly transcribed.

Up comes a longish list - Henry's b. 1839 Surrey -  then go down the list til you spot one whose parents are the ones you are looking for  ;)

I found them on findmypast too.  I find that site a lot more accurate when it comes to the 1841 census.
