Having looked at my notes again this is where I think I quoted from originally. I cannot check census as I do not belong to any sites

“The south Gloucestershire parish of St George was in the eastern part of the out-parish of St. Philip & Jacob, Bristol until 1751, when the ecclesiastical parish was created. The civil parish formed in 1784, comprised of what are now the east Bristol suburbs of Crews Hole, Crofts End, Greenbank, Lower Easton, Moorfields, Redfield, St George, Speedwell, Two Mile Hill, Whitehall, and White’s Hill. It bounded on the north by the parish of Stapleton, on the east by the former chapelries/tithings of Oldland and Hanham Abbots both in the parish of Bitton, and the west by the out-parish of St Philip & Jacob, Bristol. The river Avon marks the southern boundary and the old division between the counties of Gloucestershire and Somerset.”

It is entirely possible that FamilySearch has confused White's Hill in Bristol with Whiteshill in Gloucestershire.
Looking at the original census (not a transcription) would therefore be advisable.

Many libraries offer access to either Ancestry of FindMyPast. Worth checking your local library.

Yes the family are definitely in Bristol in 1871.  The walking route mentions Troopers Hill which still exists today.

Also the wrong side of Bristol to me as I am in South Bristol.

Thanks Girl Guide for confirmation.
 Thanks also to KGarrad & Rosie99 for replying & checking for me.
I guess I will still have to keep looking to find what happened to the other members of the family. With the names they were given you would think I could find them somewhere

I have done an extensive family tree for this family for a friend. Hardicanute was his great-grandfather. If you are a member of any genealogy site maybe I can give you access to it.
