1861 census lookup - John Roberts


westville, kwazulu natal

Hi there,

Please could someone look in 1861 census for :

John Roberts Born abt 1812 Ports, Hampshire

I have him in 1881 census as Seaman Pensioner, and his wife as Ann, a Laundress. They had two sons, William and Charles in 1839 and 1842 respectively in Bramshaw, Hampshire.

Many thanks
I can't seem to find them on 1861.

I think that I have found them on 1851. Is this your family ?

John Roberts 38 born Portsea Hants
