name in 1861 census
« on: Friday 09 October 20 08:36 BST (UK) »
This has been transcribed on Ancestry as

Palaford HELSON age 18, pupil, B Sussex, Brighton
and on FindMyPast as
Matilda BREDEE (unmarried male)   

It looks more like the former than the latter but I cannot find any him anywhere else. Birth/other census.
Can anyone else?

Census is 1861 Martyr Worth 52/690/22/12

He is one of about 10 boys being tutored by the Vicar of Martyr Worthy. One of them is an Honorable, and several born O/S  (Florence and Barbados, son of a Planter) so he could be "anyone"
