Dave beat me to it with his reply . Accleston is very much a Kent Name

in the 1891 census you wil see the whole family

Henry Head Ag Lab born 1846
Emma wife born 1853
Maude 1880
Mary 1884
Katherine 1885
Bessie 1887
john 1887
Henry ( harry ) 1889
all born in Cobham and living at Battle St Cobham

in 1881 at Henhurst Cobham RG11 P878 F58 P12
there is also a son William born 1872 who is not there in 1891

in 1871 at Battle st Cobham RG10 P897 f22 P36
They had had a baby Mary Ann aged 0 which presumably died at sometime as there is a later Mary born in 1884

go back to 1861 and there are the parents of Henry with his siblings


Henry born 1819 chatham an Ag Lab
Elizabeth 1825 wife born Cobham
Henry
Ann Hannah
emma
elizabeth
Sarah
mary A
Emily
all the children and wife born Cobham
RG09 P473 F46 P2
address Sole St Cobham

You will be able to follow them back through the 1851 and 1841 census and then family search .org or IGI. You are lucky it is a rare name and they stayed in kent

Henry the youngest was a private in army based at aldershot by 1911

Hope thats given you a start. I suspect the problem was a wrong year of birth for the middle Henry

good luck with further searches

Hello dochines,

Well, I didn't really beat you because it seems I found a totally different family based on the born about 1865.

Dave
