Peter Cross 1851 Census
« on: Sunday 01 November 20 22:40 GMT (UK) »
Can someone help me locate Peter Cross born 1769 Runnington, Somerset in the 1851 census?

In the 1841 census, Peter and his wife, Sarah, can be found living with their daughter Hannah Addison and her family in Langford Budville - Piece 951, Book 7, Folio 12, Page 18. Sarah died in 1844 and according to the GRO Peter died 1853/1854, registered in the Wellington district. However Peter is not with Hannah's family in the 1851 census nor any of his other children that have been traced so far.

Can a fresh set of eyes please see if Peter can be found in this particular census?

Peter Cross was recorded as a carpenter in 1841, so has he been given the wrong surname here:

Ancestry has got him as 32 not 82

Thank you! Yes it is Peter with the wrong surname, age, and misspelling for place of birth. The head of the family is his daughter who I didn't know existed so there is another branch to be explored.

FreeREG is missing the last two children as the baptism transcripts only go up to 1810, Rebecca (1813) who later married Edward Waygood, and the above Mary (1815) who married James Taylor.
