John Kerby 1841 Census - additional info?
« on: Monday 17 April 23 19:03 BST (UK) »
I don`t have Ancestry or Findmypast at the moment but by using Familysearch I have found John Kerby in 1841 but there is no indication of his occupation or marital state.  I wondered if the original record shows anything more.  Also he doesn`t appear to be living with any relatives and I`m not sure if he is alone or sharing with others.
He is in Berkley Court,  Clerkenwell St James. Middlesex
  Book number 5:  Line number 24:  Page number 36
Piece/Folio 661/42     Reg No.  HO107

I already know when he was born and who his parents were and have just sent for his death certificate - he died just before the Census in 1851

Many thanks

Thanks - that was quick!!

That would make sense - all of the family were watchmakers.
I haven`t been able to find out if he married - hopefully his death certificate might give me a clue

His address on the Burial record is Bishops Court so he must have moved between 1841-1851

You can see an image on FamilySearch, though not great quality
