Watts Family Sancton East Yorkshire
« on: Saturday 14 November 20 04:35 GMT (UK) »
My late Frank father was he was born in 1924.  I cannot find any censuses with him registered,  I know he was born at his grandparent farm in South Newbold the family name was Marson. and they lived at Ash Tree Farm.  My father's parents  Bernard and Ethel Watts lived in low street  Sancton, where my grandfather had a Market Garden. how far do the censuses go and how often were they taken.
and is there anywhere I could find out more about the Market Garden. I know the business name was B. Watts &Sons.
 I have tried looking on Ancestry but can't find anything.
can anyone help or give me advise
thank  Jenny

Hello Jenny

The census takes place every 10 years and I think the 1921 census will available in Jan 1922 https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/news/contract-awarded-to-publish-the-1921-census-online/ 

However you can search the 1939 Register which was undertaken pre 1939 pre WW2 and based on a free search you should able to find Bernard Watts living in Sancton on the Register

Looking at newspaper reports I noticed in the Hull Daily Mail 28 January 1950 there was interesting advert
