Census 1901 - Can you help to find Stephen Callear (Treeton/Swinton?)
« on: Friday 04 March 22 17:15 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Sorry - my Ancestry search skills are just not returning a 1901 census match for:

Stephen Callear
b. Oct 1 1880 (recorded at Rotherham)

In 1891, he is living with his parents @ 92, Wood Lane, Treeton, Yorkshire. Important: Name appears as "Gallear" [The C and G seem to constantly change in this branch]

1901: Coincidentally(?), I have not found his father Stephen G/Callear (b. 1840 - Lawley, SHROP)

In 1911, he is married [1908] and living @ 51, Brookfield Avenue, Swinton, Yorkshire. Occupation: Coal Miner

Can anyone find one or both Stephen's?  ???

Those are the right Stephen's.

The father seems to go by Gallear (on most occassions) while the son (and his descendants) seems to go by Callear  ???

Try changing the spelling of Callear/Gallear to Callaer/Gallaer

Thanks but no luck with that suggestion.

I've tried all sorts of variants but sadly to no avail. I've even tried searching (on Ancestry) without his first name.

The problem is compounded by the fact that he was not married or a parent at that time so no options to search that way.

I am still filling out their branch so I remain hopefully that one of the other family members will lead me to them.

The age doesn't tie in with the other information that I have for Stephen (the father).

His age is he 71 then (so he would be shown as 61 in 1901).

He is recorded as being widowed in the 1911 census but I have yet to confirm when his wife Frances "Fanny" died. The latest fact that I have is the 1883 birth of your youngest.
