1871 Census Thomas W Nevin (1848)
« on: Sunday 24 June 18 15:23 BST (UK) »
Can anyone find Thomas W Nevin born 1848 Allendale, Northumberland on the 1871 census?

I have him on all censuses apart from the 1871. In 1861 he is at Wedger House, Allendale with the rest of the family. In 1881 he is in Allendale Town with new wife Hannah. In 1871 his father Matthew is visiting the Robsons' at Plenmeller, Allendale (although the age is way out this is the correct Matthew) and his mother Mary and siblings are at Hunstonworth, Durham.

Thank you

Thank you, its nearer than anything I have found. I guess you might get from Nevin to Neathan with a very thick accent. The occupation is out of line with the rest of his "career" but I can think of a reason why he is away from home. I will have to look for his uncle who should be in this part of Northumberland to see if that helps any.

Also there is nothing like a Thomas Neathan born Northumberland 1845 - 1855 on the GRO or familysearch (apart from 71 census) so that helps

Thank you for the suggestion
