Thanks folks for your help and advice.   I will continue to dig around the 1881 census.  Perhaps if I circle it and keep moving inwards, something will come to light.
Regards

Dont forget that records now are better than what they used to be and human error may have lead to many things missed. In the early days of registration it was the duty of the registrar to walk round and enumerate new births a bit like a census but he often got word from midwives and doctors. A lot of births were not registered as he may have missed some, or the parents didn't bother to inform him if he was around. From 1875 onwards the parents had to register the births themselves. And if two namesake people were born at the same time in a village for instance, probably cousins or not related at all, the registrar may have got mixed up and thought there was just one birth with that name unaware there was two and missed one.

Genie,

If he died in 1883- have you tried that address to see if they were there then?

Or the address they were at in 1871?

Or any George marreid to an Ann born 1820 -/+ with his profession?

I know that some people on Rootschat know how to find out which census records have been lost but can't remember who! Sorry !

Carol

I've been doing some research into my grandmother's family, the Atkins, and discovered that George Frederick Atkins is my G G G Grandfather. That means we're related! If you're still active on this site then do get in touch so we can share our findings.

Hi FT

Good to hear from you.   Atkins is my mum's side of the family but they're hard to trace because I think they were classic moonlight flitters!  I have little information on her because she died in 1953 when I was 6 and I didn't start getting into FH until many many years later.   I think George Frederick's father was Samuel but i've hit on a couple of possibilities and haven't got round to checking them out yet - the trials and tribulations of pre-census searches!   I have GFs marriage to Ann Rebecca Holmes.  If you want to ask me questions about different bits of info that I might have so we can really sort out where we fit into each other's family tree, please do ask -  and I'm happy to let you have my e-mail address if I can work out a private messaging facility (old age, I'm afraid!!)

Hello new family member - here's hoping we can catch up soon.

Regards
Genie
