Wardle forenames
« on: Wednesday 21 November 18 07:23 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone please help decipher some of the more obscure forenames from this 1841 census?
Many thanks

Having had a look at the original image on the census and browsed over a few pages, I would say this enumerator had a limited knowledge of name-spelling. A couple of unusual interpretations.

I think it maybe intended to be -
Joseph
Sarah,
Joseph
Georgina
Germain?
Johannah
Rosetta

Sue

Thank you LordJohnson and others. Have found George German Wardle and also others from the same family group which included Keren- Happuch Wardle and Jerushah Wardle!!!!! Biblical names I believe?
