Hhmm interesting.  I see that William's birth year is c 1838 so nearly ten years older than James.

I don't know if perhaps William was visiting the pub on census night but lived in Stow Maries.

James is in the 1871 at Piece 1673 Folio 115 Page 6

Quite probably, GG :)
It did pass through my mind that William, 34, in 1881 just might be James with his name wrong. I do sometimes wonder if the details about some lodgers in the census are wholly accurate! But then there is also the fact it said he was married, and there is no sign that James was. Not to mention occupation "Horseman"

I have asked Lincoln to provide the address that is on the death certificate.  It may be worth checking it in the 1881 census.

James Lincoln did have a brother called William Henry born in Purleigh in1836 whodid marry.

I believe it was Woodham Ferris going from memory.believe he married a widow.some bit older than him and they didnít have children together although I need to double check all of this.

Thank you all so much.
Canít find James in 1881 census which I would love to know where he was. His mum Susannah Lincoln and her partner Thomas Enifer were in the Maldon workhouse.

There is no address on the death certificate, only states, Stow Marries. Believe someone else posted that she found info stAting he died whilst on a trip to Stow Maries. Whether that was a day trip or a longer visit we do t know.

As you say as his sister Sarah Smith nee Lincoln was the informant that would suggest he didnít marry.

Would it be very rare not to be married at the age of 35 in the 1870-80s. Maybe he wasnít the best catch!

I wouldn't regard the fact that he was unmarried at the age of 35 unusual.  Not everyone wants to get married and that was probably just as likely in Victorian times as it is today.

Thanks for your post. His brother William didnít get married till in his 30s either. Just thought it was unusual. Their mother Susannah left their father so maybe that didnít help.
