They changed their names first and second and gave different places of birth but like you say we found them out 😁 !!! I think using this site helps a lot as well

Hi Rebecca

Lovely to hear from you - bit confused now!! I have been researching various families for the past 3 years.  My granny is Ellen James - daughter of John and Minnie.  I have looked at all the census records on her family but we only found them on a few census's - John and Minnie only appear on 2 census's - 1881 and 1911.  In 1911 they only appear to have 3 children when they are living at 8 Seaton Road, Mitcham - however most of the others would be married at this time but my granny is there with her parents.   We did find John with his parents in 1891 along with many of his brothers and sisters but in all the records we have found his father is named Joseph (see details below).

"In 1891 John appears on the census with his parents, Joseph and Louisa. They are camping on Park Downs, Epsom, Surrey.  They are aged 54 (born in Aldershot) and 52 (born in East Grinstead). Also living with them are Robert aged 33 (born in Molesey, Surrey), John aged 31 (born in Nutley, Sussex), Rebecca aged 30 (born in Aldershot), Henry aged 27 (born in Aldershot), Elizabeth aged 26 (born in Reading), Louisa aged 25 (born in Greenwich), Alfred aged 24 (born in Hadlow), Mark aged 22 (born in Mitcham), Joseph aged 19 (born in Morden) and Ada aged 10 (born in Leatherhead). Their occupation is listed as travelling gypsies."

We also traced Minnie and she was a Collins - her parents were Samuel Collins and Amy Ayres.

Hope this helps you - please let me know if I can help further.

Best wishes (wont be back on line until next Monday as away now)

Waynus

Hi waynus,
              Since reading your previous message I have checked the 1891 census 3 times lol and I see john as head of the family BUT the every other name . I have it saved on my tree on ancestry but I don't have a clue how I get it on here for you.
   Their son Joseph marries a rebecca smith and their daughter vertina is my great gran !! I have louisa as an ayres whos parents are henry ayres and olive james . Still confused we are definitely looking at the same people but seeing a different name for joe/john  :D
