Many,many thanks to all three of you for the prompt and extra detailed answers, much appreciated.
If i can conclude the requests for this family, could i please have a look-up in 1841/1851 for a William Twist born about 1835 in St. Helens [ 1881 census].
With regards,
  Long Tom.

Is this the same William Twist we were looking for before? Or another possible candidate?

If you are in the UK you may not be aware that many libraries have access to the Ancestry library Collection some this is available free and some there may be a small charge.

www.lan-opc.org.uk which is a free website may also have inormation that is useful to you. The site gives a possible marriage

Marriage: 6 Feb 1859 St Mary the Virgin, Prescot, Lancashire, England
William Twist - Joiner bachelor of Parr
Jane Smith - spinster of Parr
    Groom's Father: Henry Twist, Collier
    Witness: Jonathan Johnson; Mary Worsley
    Married by Banns by: Francis L Horsham

It seems likely this William was born in Parr. The index on ancestry confirms that in 1861 and 1871 William states born Parr.

Hi Gibel,
No it is a different William and is a confirmed line, but both are in the 1881 Census, and are Joiners.
I am in Australia and do not have any Library service on these subjects, but do use the Lancs OPC site as you kindly suggested, but thank you for the details provided.
The Census post was to determine the actual residence location, and William's siblings.
Many thanks,
   Long Tom.

Hi if you are using Ancestry on that census ref 1851 they are TAVIST.
