Eliza Roe looks a possible [has to be after 7 April, census date] because Joseph was a wid. in 1861.

Thanks Geoff.

I noticed it was RG6 but went no further.

Can the Yatton one be found in 1851 and 1841. Hope occupation helps for 1841.

Also, can the one who died in Wells in 1879 be found in all census?

I'm trying to find a Joesph with no gap in census or one with a gap.

Yeah, the gap between 1841 [and possibly before] and 1861 is ominous, I've tried not to speculate and tried to stick to the Joseph b. Yatton.

With just a little speculation :rolleyes: there is this which keeps him in England if correct..

Joseph Willmott
Age: 41
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1801
Date of Trial: 3 Jan 1842
Trial Year: 1842
Location of Trial: Somerset, England
Sentence: Imprisonment
[Larceny. 3 weeks imprisonment]

At the risk of clouding the situation, directly under Joseph on the image is a John Peacock 37. Larceny. 1x Fortnight imprisonment.

I tried not to go there. :biggrin:

We know two born Gloucestershire/Somerset abt 1800 died in England so trying to find them both in 1841 - 1871.

We also know one was a convict and in NSW by 1828 and traced in NSW up to 1845.

We're not short of Josephs' in the area in 1841, just can't get the Occ. to match..

Chew Magna = Shopkeeper
Clapton = Ag Lab..

Two factors compromising this are, if the convict returned to England and no age at death for any of the Josephs' :rolleyes:

Unless we get a profile of all Josephs' b. c1800, it will be nearly impossible to determine..
