Harriet Pragnell 1861 Census
« on: Sunday 28 April 19 09:35 BST (UK) »
Please can I have help in deciphering the entry in the 1861 census for this lady.
The transcript states 'daughter in law' but looking at the original I do not think is true. The handwriting is not easy to read & my eyesight not the best. Also I think occupation is 'Charwoman'?
I do not think there is a family connection with head ' James Hawker'. many thanks david
