Lost child in the 1841 Census.
« on: Thursday 27 September 18 19:00 BST (UK) »
Charles Edwin Pike, the son of George and his second wife Elizabeth, was born in Norwood, Surrey, Oct-Dec 1840 and christened there on 11 April 1841. He and his mother are missing from the 1841 census, where we find only George and the two children from his first marriage, Caroline and John. Charles Edwin died in 1844 and I'm using him to try to track down his mother and, perhaps, his grandparents (all I know is that his maternal grandfather was a grocer called George Lingard). If it's any use, Elizabeth was born in Aldgate Minories.

Yes, thanks. I have that. I'm trying to push Elizabeth's line back a bit and was hoping to find her and her baby, perhaps, with her parents. But I can't find any sign of George Lingard, grocer, in the 1841 census either.

Do you mean George Pike or George Lingard?

In the original posting Dizzy Escape says George Lingard was a grocer.

In 1841 census George Pike is an ostler HO 107 / 1059 / 2 / 16 / 5

Added: also an ostler on the mc.
