Re: Thomas William Stephens born July 1840 in Bristol, missing from 1871 census.

Thanks, that looks really promising. Ages and birth places are all spot on, just her name that is incorrect. Guess it could have been an error when the enumerator transcribed the householders form.

Thomas William Stephens born July 1840 in Bristol, missing from 1871 census.

Thomas a Cooper, his wife Maria (born 1845 in Backwell, Somerset) and son Richard (born 1866 in Bedminster, Bristol) as far as I can see are all missing from the 1871 census. Any help locating them will be gratefully received, thank you.

Re: What is his Occupation?

The census reference is Piece 2556 Folio 67 Page 62 - Patrick O'Brien.

In 1861 he is a Mason's labourer (at least I think this is the same chap). In 1864 he is a Butcher (Journeyman), this is definitely the same chap. In 1881 he is a Pork Butcher.

Thanks for any guidance.

Re: Jane Hollisey (nee Read) born c1829, missing from 1861 census

Was she mistranscriberd as "Holloway"? I did a search on her address in 1871 on FMP by address and a Jane Holloway age 30 is at 16 Park Square with Mary A Holloway aged 2. The birthplace, however, is given as Milverton. You are correct, she was at 16 Park Square in 1871 and on 1 Dec 1874 when her s...

I have her on the 1841, 1851 and 1871 census but not the 1861. Her daughter Alice Lavinia Hollisey was born in central Bristol in Dec 1851. A ...

Have you looked at their website?.
Not yet, but FMP gives their catalogue/reference number so it should be easy to find.

Thank you both for your help.
