1841 Census request please


Looking please for details from the 1841 census for birth of

SARAH CRANE (age 49)

Registration district West London, sub reg dist West London South, ED 1b Household sced no: 40

living with son Charles Crane (age 7)
I looked under the 1841 census found alot of sarah crane but nothing matching your description, actually I couldn't find sarah with a son charles. is there any more infor that you might know that could narrow the search?:(
Thanks for your efforts; after asking the family we only came up with Sarah being born about 1802 and possibly being in Smithfield/Holburn around 1841 but now some doubt as to the date of the birth of Charles. Hope this helps

Thanks, Mike
Crane was definetly the married name of Sarah or at least the name she gave her son but as we don't know her husband's name I can only hope that she was in fact married.

I didn't find this under the 1841, but the 1851 could this be correct?

If this is correct then Charles would not have been born in 1841, but Sarah was a widow by 1851 and was living in the same place as she was born.
Thank you Joyce for your efforts;

someone showed me over Christmas the marriage certificate of Charles showing John Crane as his father but what was more interesting to me was to research the address. It turns out Field Lane was about the worst street in London, full of criminals and perverts. It was alledgedly the site of Fagin's lair in David Copperfield. So what the census collector was told may or may not be correct anyway for most residents of this street and possibly the Cranes included. I should not be suprised that Sarah did not appear in the 1841 census but rather that anyone tried to collect names in that street at all.

Thaks again
