1841 census Scotland or England ??


Thanks Geoff.

Would seem they were in Scotland in 1841.

But can't find a birth for James on SP. Or Ellen or Henry.

But it seems they didn't record three births there. So didn't care about census either.
Daughter Emma = Charlotte Emma is the connection to my tree.

Well this points to 1840 so maybe England by 1841.

I wonder if this is James, but it's England?

Perhaps born Scotland but not registered then baptised in England.

Middle name is probably Evans.

I've looked again in England for 1841 and can't find them.
