Hello:
Frederick Finch (born 1853 at Steyning) and his wife, Fanny (born 1853 at Angmering) lived and raised their family at Angmering.  As of the 1881 census, we know that Frederick and Fanny had five children: Kate Alice (1874), Fred (1876), Fanny (1878), Ernest (1879), and Ellen (1881).
If someone has access to the Angmering (East Preston) census for 1891, does this family appear in that set? with more children? (I'll bet ;)).
Many thanks in advance for any assistance or pointers,

Here we go

Station Road Angmering  (all born Angmering except Frederick):

Finch, Frederick abt 1853 (b Steyning)  Ag Lab
Finch, Fanny abt 1853
Finch, Ernest abt 1880
Finch, Ellen abt 1881
Finch, Mary abt 1883
Finch, Harriett abt 1885
Finch, Annie abt 1887
Finch, Richard James abt 1890

Looks like Kate Alice and Fred jnr have flown the coop. I'll give them a separate try.

Thank you, Julian ... that's a *very* speedy reply :o.  Glad I asked ... as there are four more children!  I had a feeling...
I have to admire your "genealogist as a young man" icon... ;-).

p.s. I think Kate Alice might be at Littlehampton, as I found her there in the 1901 census index online.  And by 1901, Fred Jr was a "Gunner RMA" somewhere in Kent.

Julian, sorry to be a pest after your kind lookup, but could you post the PRO reference, please?

RG12/838 was the 1891 census ref for the main family.

Found Kate Alice (age 16) in 1891 working as a general servant domestic in the Gain household, Holly Lodge, Christchurch Road, Worthing.

Couldn't find Fred jnr in 1891, but in 1901, as you said, he was a Gunner (single, aged 25) on board "Pembroke Division 2" at Chatham, Kent.  Perhaps he was at sea in 1891?

Hope this is helpful.

It is, Julian ... thanks again.  I have the 1901 index reference to the rest of the family and shall be logging on (purchasing credits) to the National Archives web site soon.
Cheers,
