« on: Tuesday 19 November 19 11:47 GMT (UK) »
Morning, looking for a transcript - if anyone has access - for the 1851 census , Market Place, Warminster, Wiltshire for Richard Elliot Vardy (and his family) Richard is a printer employing 4 men and 5 boys in 1851. I am not directly connected with the family, doing some research for a project on Printers in the Wiltshire area, if anyone has the 1861 or 1831 that would be great too.  I have the 1841 details - many thanks in advance

The family lived next door to Samuel L Vardy, a chemist, in 1851. (He was Richard's brother.)

His father was Joshua Lambert Vardy, also a bookseller in Warminster.  Joshua had been a Non-conformist missionary as well.

Richard's wife was Susan Ellis and they married in Portsea in 1838.
