I'm trying to find my great grandfather on the 1861 census
He was born Sep 1840 and died 1929
1841 census he is 9months and a twin
1851 I think he has been transcribed wrongly as only 8
1861 his twin is listed and his younger brother but not him
And he is listed on all subsequent census
He was a watch/clock maker
Can any one find him please

Is he not the one who married firstly to Isabella Tilbury in 1867?

In 1861 he is in St. Mary le Strand, Westminster, transcribed on Ancestry as 'Fillman'. Assistant, Watchmaker.

Good find Annette.

If it is him in 1871 394/24/42 , I can’t read the occupation. It looks like ‘click jobber’ but presumably it is ‘clock’   :-\
