Do you have the four children in later censuses?
1851 -Clara, Mary Ann and Edward J

1861 -Edwin (Edward from 1851)

Who is the 4th?

The death reported in the Liverpool newspaper is the same death that you have isnít it?

What is the address on that death certificate and is the daughterís surname Postlethwaite or is she married?

That's not the right John Prostlethwaite as his father's name was William and not Thomas

Is that your John Postlethwaite in 1851, 1861 and 1871 though?

1851 - John and Mary Ann Occ: Officer of House of Correction
1861 John and Elizabeth (and Edwin J) Occ:  Prison Officer Still looking for a marriage between them
1871 is the Census Rosie suggested and I'm still checking that out as he's with Mary, again!

1861 Census doesn't seem right  No Mary but Elizabeth   DOB and place of birth different
1871 Census  - John and Mary fits in well with 1851   :(  Any suggestions?

There is this man in 1861 who I think may be the one from 1871

1861 324 / 29/2
10 New Western Street Bermondsey

John Postlethwaite widower 45 yrs Manager Wine and Beer Merchant b Ulverston
William Kirkby Postlethwaite 12 yrs b Liverpool

Added
Just realised John is with Elizabeth in 1861 so maybe this is just another one  ::)

Perhaps he is the one who dies in 1875.
