Ah Rosie, but ... if I didn't keep asking the question, 'what if ?' I would never had discovered most of what I now know about my direct ancestors ( thanks to Rootschatter detectives) and I would never have came across a real live .. Jethro Horn Blower, a Wine Merchant from Truro.  You couldn't make him up.  I would never have discovered my great Grandfather was an Army Deserter and that my Great Grandmother spent much of her short married life in Workhouses on the Isle of Wight only to be dead by the too young age of 26.
cheers, Ian

The Manchester Tart ( a confection, not a lady of ill repute, I haste to say) was rushed to the venue via rail from Manchester, and a good time was had by all.
Ah, but you can't prove that Liverpool Lou wasn't at the hotel, leaving before midnight so that she wasn't included on the census.  ;D

True.... but equally well, unless you actually have her at an address on Census night, you cannot prove she was, either!!

I presume that you have looked to see who is staying there in 1861.  Occupations are very similar

seems to be against her nature to stay home, I think she was at the Adelphi
'  Oh Liverpool Lou, lovely Liverpool Lou
Why don't you behave, love, like the other girls do?
Why must my poor heart be following you
Stay home and love me, my Liverpool Lou
Still searching for how to access the 2nd page of the census on familysearch.org

2nd page. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGLQ-GLR

Which included transcription of the following page which starts at Siboria Vergara
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

The South Lancashire Spring Assizes were at Liverpool Crown Court over the 2 weeks either side of the 1851 Census-.....might be relevant?!
