Difficult to read?? COMPLETED
« on: Tuesday 23 October 18 11:20 BST (UK) »
FamilySearch shows John Bibby age 32 born Littleborough, SISTER of Ellen Cunningham, in the 1871 census. It also shows another John Bibby age 41 born Manchester, STAFFORDSHIRE lodging at the same address. There are clearly mistakes here. Is the writing bad?

And the entry relating to John Bibby 'sister' 'dealer in fish' born Littleborough on the previous page appears to have been completely crossed through on the original page  :-\

Got it, it's a mistake and crossed out, sister and lodger were combined for some reason.

John Bibby lodger

Mary McMarraman is the sister who is the fish seller aged 32  ;D
