Something is not right with that census. If Martha is a daughter then where is Martha nee Collings in 1871.
If that's the wife of Joseph then relationship to head is wrong. ?

Where is Benjamin in 1871 ?

The Martha Nettleton born Wyke and aged 21 is Joseph's wife - should have been entered as daughter in law rather than daughter. Emily Nettleton born Jun 1870 Bradford 9b 61 mmn Collins

I think I have worked out who Benjamin Nettleton was

Amos and Martha Nettleton had a daughter baptised 1834 named Sarah Bentley Tordoff Nettleton

Amos' brother James had a son in 1837 named Jabez Nettleton

Jabez Nettleton married Sarah Bentley Tordoff Nettleton Sep 1863 Bradford 9b 189

Jabez and Sarah had a son Ben Sep 1868 Bradford 9b 225 mmn Nettleton

Jabez and family 1871
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VBZ4-RLG

I cannot find the family after 1871 so perhaps they emigrated as well. No deaths found so I'm not sure why young Ben was with Joseph and Martha.

Thanks emeltee. Good work :)

I was at the State Library yesterday and managed to get some images of Shipping records. I'm working backwards from it so not far into the families yet.


I didn't know but just found this.

Mabel Nettleton Sep 1874 Bradford 9b 282 mmn Nettleton.

I wonder how Ben and Mabel came to be included with Joseph and Martha? Obviously a clerk playing Happy Families!
