Never trust a transcription! Always go for the original image if available.

Yes Iíve learned that the hard way! 😩 I usually struggle with the handwriting and find the transcripts handy so I went with that. I canít justify spending more money to look when itís a curiosity more than anything that will help! Iíll no doubt change my mind next week though who knows!

I finally bit the bullet and downloaded the original. It states L.N.W.R (out of work). He had 6 children some born in Watford and some in Birmingham so that really makes sense why he moved around especially to those areas. His wife was the breadwinner (literally she had a bakers shop) for years so maybe they moved to reading in order for her to start a business. She is listed as a general dealer employing her eldest daughter and only herself and eldest daughter were bringing in an income.

Well that puts that one to bed! The LPWR never existed and he never commuted to Euston, thanks
