Cheshunt, Hertfordshire - ALVEY/BIGBY


Well-known member
Lakeland, Florida, USA
I have a query about the 1861 Census - Cheshunt, Hertfordshire for the names ALVEY & BIGBY.

I did a free search on Ancestry.com
and found the family I was looking for:
Julia ALVEY b. abt. 1837 (she was nee BIGBY and had married Samuel ALVEY who was away at the time of this census)
Alvey b. abt 1858
Joseph ALVEY b. abt. 1858 (he was a son)
Samuel Harman ALVEY b. abt. 1860 (he was a son)

My question:
I know of, and have records of: Julia (mother), Joseph (son) and Samuel Harman (son)

BUT what of the ALVEY b. abt. 1858 ?

I don't know about him or her - was he/she a twin of Joseph (twins do run in this particular branch)

The family may have been living with the BIGBY's at this time, as a search of that name shows Julia listed as ALVEY and BIGBY.

Can anyone shed some light on this please?
