Thanks Geoff.

I'm not going to trace the others. Son Thomas is my interest and I can't verify his baptism date. At least I have his arrival.

Deaths
8034/1904 UPTON THOMAS - STEPHEN - SYDNEY
13406/1938 UPTON SARAH JANE 89 YRS SYDNEY SYDNEY


I won't try for another census look up today. :2fun:

Yes.

The author of the tree fell into the same trap with that 1841 census listing for a Thomas.

The Canton could have left after the census but turns out it didn't.
