Help with 1851 census entry please Coventry
« on: Wednesday 22 September 21 06:32 BST (UK) »
Help with some words on this entry for William Maycock would be appreciated.

1.  Is he married, unmarried or widowed?

2.  What type of labourer is he?

3.  Where in Coventry was he born?

Thanks,
Jen.

Unmarried?. How does the entry compare with other "unmarried"?
Labourer, masons ?
Warks" (Warwickshire)Coventry? Again, how does that compare with other entries?

PS I see amondg has got in ahead of me. Glad to see we agree.

Amondg and Brentor boy, thankyou for your quick responses.   William's wife died 1843 so would expect to see widowed but maybe unmarried is appropriate as well.  All previous records state 'labourer' with no trade attached.  Coventry Warwickshire does not match 1841 census.  May have incorrect William Maycock.

Regards,
Jen.
