Thank you both.

Interestingly by 1881 the family had moved 120 miles north to work in the mines near Shafton (a long way to go and quite a change from the agricultural landscape of Bolnhurst!)

It looks to me like Bracknoend.  In 1861 it is Backnoend

Hi Rosie, as I am always trying to learn, could you tell me how you searched the 1861 census by address please?

Thank you,

 F M P gives the option on each census to search by name or address by using the slider at the top of the search page.

So easy when you know how!

I had always searched the census under census, land and survey rather than directly through the record sets (silly me!   ???).

Thank you for the help!

I think we all learn 'new tricks' for searching on here.  One of the benefits of rootschat  :)

Thanks Rosie - do you know if there is a way of searching for someone in two different locations at the same time.

For example, David Thomas Miles moved from Bolnhurst, Bedfordshire to Shafton, Yorkshire; is it possible to do a search that covers both locations or do I have to do them separately?

Thank you again for your wisdom!

To do that I would use the Census search in 'Census land & surveys' - put in name - year of birth and in  optional keywords - Bedfordshire.   It obviously is better on a more uncommon surname
