Could this be him with the name John

John Sneesby 17 Farm Lab. Elm, Cambridgeshire

He's working for a Jane Richards and family.

Don't know for sure Geoff.

Perhaps 388 = 355 and the Sneesby family are close to Papworth family.

Yeah, Sub-RD not out of the question, though a bit further N. of Wisbeach and Elm?

As you first mentioned, there looks to be 'something wrong'?
