Well done Cas!

So, it looks as if there is a discrepancy in ages as well as name between Vincent (bn 1868) and William (bn c. 1874) as per 1891 and 1901 censuses.

Is this an insurmountable discrepancy   ???

This Wincas has an approx birth date of 1871, so perhaps he was flexible with his age  :)

Also, I can see Wincas (prob pronounced Vincas) being anglicised as either William or Vincent and possibly both.

Would they have been Jewish? There's a big Jewish population in Manchester. If he went to Britain in 1880s or '90s it may have been to escape pogroms.
If they came from Poland, Ukraine or Lithuania they may have been Catholic. Likewise big Catholic population in Manchester. There may be a baptism of child with names of godparents. Where did parents marry? There are Ukrainian Rite Catholics.

Hi everyone! wow that took off fast! Thank you one and all, you're helping massively. I don't remember who mentioned.it but the marriage of Clinton and Mielienckas is the right one...that's my Vincent and Catherine. Hmm, any ideas where to go from here? I am stumped by all this information! What would you all suggest is the most likely course of action? Did anyone find Vincent's death? Thanks again guys you're all fantastic!
