Francis Lamb-Birmingham
« on: Wednesday 24 September 14 12:22 BST (UK) »
He was last seen on the 1891 census age 36, single and living as a border at 62 Great Charles Street, Birmingham.  He was know in the family as Uncle Frank.  Where did he go?  I have hit a brickwall.
Any suggestions please would be helpful.

Certainly elusive Carol.  Followed a few but they don't seem to be yours unfortunately. Still looking.

The Francis Lamb, aged 36, at Great Charles Street in 1861 is a Printer.

My guess is that he is the person we (or rather I!) have been finding?

Where was your Francis born?
Do you have him on any censuses?

Hi,

Spent time looking for a Francis Lamb and Mary Ann and find a couple in Birmingham Warwickshire (St George) 1861 both aged 22 years but no Francis  ??? So could Francis you are looking for be younger than the 36 years on the 1891 census  ???

Francis Lamb  22 Born Birm. Pencil Core Maker.
Mary Ann Lamb  22

Then in 1871 a Francis Lamb as a lodger in the household of the Shore family and he is widowed but I can't find a death for a Mary Lamb.

Martha Shore  46 Joseph Shore  16
Harry Wm Shore  13 Ann L Shore  11
John Shore  9 Francis Shore  2
Francis Lamb  35 Born Birmingham. Widowed. Jeweller.
