RICHARD THOMAS RICE
« on: Tuesday 11 August 20 23:28 BST (UK) »
Hi listers
Looking for more info on my great grandfather in 1871 and 1881. He was born 7.11.1864 at 9 John St Morice Town Devonport
Married June Are 1887 to Fanny Ann Bawden Stoke Damerel but I don't know where he was in between as  a child/teenager as his elder brother Robert in the 1871 census was living with grandparents who were Robert Lang and Mary Rice. Find it odd that he wasn't recorded in the census living with them too?
Any info appreciated

You appear to have his birth cert - who were his parents?  mmn was Donovan so was it Robert Lang Rice & Matilda Donovan who married 1861?

No deaths for either parent so have you found them in 1871?

If you have his birth cert - what was his fathers occupation?

I have found him in 1881

Matilda married James Page in 1876 and Richard is shown as Richard Page on the 1881 entry aged 15 b Devonport

It wasn't a question of changing his name back - he was always Rice and I have notified an amendment to the 1881 entry.  When the census was taken, the enumerator has assumed his surname was Page as he was Matilda's son
