hi

has anyone access to the 1841 census for lancashire? , im trying to find out where my (known) greatx3, greatx2 grandfathers lived in 1841. my great x3 grandfather , alexander (born 1793) his wife mary (also born 1793) their son thomas (born 1818) along with others children (ellen 1816, dorothy 1820, mary 1823, john 1824, sarah jane 1832, andrew 1836).

i believe they lived in the standish area, and ive seen the 1841 census for standish but no 'shaws' are listed there, although there are some in nearby coppull. i know my great grandfatherx2 was born in coppull but they had apparently moved by 1841.

any help to assist me filling in the gaps would be most welcome, thank you.

edit... just seen name requests are a no no... sorry please delete .
