I have a Thomas Turner who is living in Needingworth, Huntingdonshire in 1841 & 1851, on the 1851 it says he was born in Wickford, Cambs but I cannot find it on a map so is it a miss spelling of witchford which is in the County.

Any thoughts,

Peter
 
Hi pjtw

Have you found Thomas on later censuses than 1851?

I have come across misspellings of parishes in the birthplace column in censuses, giving a parish that simply has never existed.

Best now to search the parish registers for Witchford to see what that throws up. It is not far from Huntingdonshire so could well be the place he meant.
