Joseph Burgess Staffordshire 1891


Loyal Member
I'm really struggling with my Burgess line, I cannot find Joseph on the 1891 census, fresh pair of eyes needed,(mine are starting to cross :D) if anyone would like to try and find him please.

I have the other census returns for him except 1891.

Joseph Burgess was born in Longton Staffordshire in 1840. He worked as a potters saggar maker.

in 1881:-
Joseph Burgess 41
Mary A. Burgess 37
Mary J. Burgess 17
Priscilla Burgess 13
Mary A. Burgess 10
Eliza Burgess 9
Joseph Burgess 4
Sarah Burgess 1
The address is given as Kildare street, Blurton.

In 1891 his family :-
8, Spring rd, Longton Staffs
Mary A Burgess 47
Eliza Burgess 18
Joseph Burgess 17
Sarah Burgess 11
Samuel Burgess 9
Frank Burgess 4

- no sign of Joseph but in 1901, Joseph is in the local workhouse, and his death is listed as that year too. His wife Mary A has moved to another Longton address with her two sons, Samuel and Frank.

Any help much appreciated :)
Thank you.
