That's his marriage
He is at 5 Wilmott street, Bloomsbury in 1865 Electoral Roll
1866 his death he is at 40 Upper Seymour Street, Pancras

No joy at either street in 1861

One son is with grandparents

Just vanished.

Thanks Dave,
Just found another entry for 1855 in Medical Practitioners, listed as 1 Archers Terrace, Old Ford Essex.
Which I cannot locate in the 1861 census but will persist.

Just found another entry for the baptism of their son.
William Henry Taylor Townsend 9 Mar 1862 shown as living at 3 Deans Court, Old Bailey
But they are not there on the 1861 census - so I assume they are moving around a lot! :rolleyes:
I think I will give up on this as I have wasted too much time already :mad:
