Hi Dave,

In 1861 Edward is still living with Henry Carter


In 1871 all I can find is an E Davis lodging at 40 Wise Street, Portsea, occupation given as Agent Mercantile

RG10/1144/F5?/p7 can't read the Folio number other than it begins 5 ( poss 51 or 57)

I can't find him at all in 1881 and 1891.

To follow on from EM's find, the Bryant's, Henry Carter and Maria Davis/Carter etc are somehow linked..

There is an Edward Davis in one of the London hospitals in 1881, ret. clerk. POB n/k and I cannot find it now :(

No wonder I couldn't find it, it was 1891 redf)

Bit of a longshot - birth, occ, living in London in 1901 in his favour.

Just noticed you have the 1891 census, be interesting to see that, I can't see either of them in the E/R's.

Thanks Emeltee,

Thanks Geoff.

Davis, Carter, Bryant, Rowe, are all connected and not easy to trace.
