Hi Simba,

Welcome to the forum. There are not many Waights with that spelling on the census, they are from Harwich, Sheppey and Plumstead Kent. Do you have any census info? I see you are looking for Seaman one of the Waights has that as their middle name.

Hi Simba,

If you apply for his birth certificate it will give you his parents names fathers occupation. Found Charles Waights marrying a Elizabeth Nalborough one of yours? they are both transcribed as White on the 1851 census, but someone has put a correction in. It looks asthough the name Waights will have many different spellings.
