Kelsall 1841 census lookup please


Active member
COMPLETED THANKS... apparently the name is registered as Kelshaw previously...

Wondered if anyone can help with this one:

According to census records - William Kelsall was born in Rochdale 1830. I have census records for 1861-1901 which all confirm this. Although the 1881 record is spelt wrong.

His marriage cert in 1853 - St Chads Rochdale - says his father is Henry - a spinner. Address at marriage 23 Mount Pleasant.

I have been unable - to-date - to find a birth record for a William in Rochdale for 1830 - father Henry and am hoping either the 1841 or 1851 record may produce other clues.

Fingers crossed...
