 :)  :)  I would also expect all RChatters who are familiar with looking at UK Census, to also recognise that the enumerator's scribble to the immediate right of the word Nephew is for the word  'Unmarried'; hopefully the transcriber who determined the word was 'Adapted' was not required to transcribe the scribble for 'Unmarried'.   :)

Which goes back to the importance of looking at images rather than relying on transcriptions and then making up your own mind. Which is surely something that all serious genealogists try and do, they never accept anything second hand as the truth.
