Hi all

Could someone do a look up for me for Augustus Riches B1859 Freebridge Lynn, Norfolk. Father George Riches, mother Fanny.

In the 1861 census he is living with parents, sister emma & brother Benjamin.
Can't find Augustus after 1861.

Cheers Peta

Hi Julie,

That looks like them especially if they were living at Brow-on the-Hill ,Leziate.

All ther names follow on to the 1881 census except for this Harry. He's not on the 1881 & there is no girl listed for the same age either. It's a new name for me.

Could I impose again & ask you to see if you can find Emma on the 1871 census for me. She was born 1853 in freebridge Lynn. On the 1881 census she is working as a cook & domestic servant to a Harry Priestly Green in Fincham, Norfolk

Thanks Peta

The only 3 Emma Riches are as follows:-

Civil parish Kempston
Reg district Mitford
Sub reg district Litcham

Emma Riches age 19 occ servant born Littleshall, Norfolk

This one could be her as the sub reg district if Fincham.

Civil parish Wereham
Reg district Downham
Sub reg district Fincham

Emma Riches servant (domestic) age 19 born West Dereham
Working for a family called Wolsey. Frederick Wolsey head is a miller, baker and merchant.

Discounted this one Emma Riches age 18 inmate born Wisbech Norfolk living in the civill parish of Holy Trinity in Yorkshire.

Hi Julie,

Thank you for these.
The second one does seem like a good possibility, as it places her in the same sub district as the 1881 census.
Wonder if he employer filled out her details for the census & got the birth area wrong.

Cheers Peta
