1871 Census
« on: Monday 15 August 05 14:08 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Does anyone know if there are "holes" in the 1871 census information? :-\
My family [Brownsword Wm, Martha, Sarah, William & Harriet - believed in Newcastle at this time] seem to have disappeared!
All help appreciated
Diane

Hi Diane,

Yes, some people seem to just be missing.

Most of the times, however, they appear to just have been mistranscribed, so doing a search on only forename/birth year/birth place or any other combination can help. 

I think this is your family in 1871:

RG10/2834
Folio 42 p. 28

Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire

39 Sulton (?) Street

William Brownsword, head, 31, Bricklayer, b. Silverdale
Martha, wife, 31, b. Newcastle
Sarah Elizabeth, dau, 5, scholar, b. Newcastle
Edwin J, son, 4, scholar, b. Newcastle
William G, son, 2, b. Newcastle
Harriet, dau, 1, b. Newcastle
Elizabeth Cook, mother in law, widow, 69, formerly housekeeper, b. Newcastle
