I'm trying desperately to find Joseph Burgess born 12th January 1840 in Longton Staffordshire.In 1901 he was in spitials workhouse, he worked as a saggar maker all his life. I have listed the details for 1881 &1871 census returns respectively to assist in the search. If anyone could find him on 1891 census I'd very much appreciate it, its driving me mad!
