missing census - gibson in Notts
« on: Monday 19 February 18 21:05 GMT (UK) »
Hello. Can you help me find family members in the census. I have looked everywhere I know to look but cannot find them.

Hannah Gibson - 1844 - 1917 - born Sutton on Trent Notts. in 1861 she was a nurse maid in Caunton.

John Gibson 1868 - ?? - illegitimate son of Hannah - born Gibson and living with maternal grandparents John and Sarah Gibson in 1871. No trace of hannah in 1871 - WHERE WAS SHE LIVING? can you help?
 
1881 Hannah had married William Wilford 1850 - ?. John was living with them in Greasley and had changed his nome to Wilford. Question - any ideas how I might know if he was legally adopted.

in 1891 Hannah and husband were still living in Greasily, but john has disappeared. CAN ANYONE FIND HIM? Ive looked under gibson and Wilford, but no trace. I cannot find a death date either.

I would appreciate any help at all.

Hi,

It would appear that Hannah and William married in Warnaby in 1873, have you looked for Hannah in that area on the 1871? Hannah gives her residence as Warnaby.

In 1871 William is in Melton Mowbray, so perhaps he met Hannah in that area.
