Will the real james williams please stand up!


Can anyone find anything on James Williams ABT 1852 born in manchester prior to the 1881 census (below). His marriage certificate says he was a "plasterer" and his father was also called James Williams.

1881 Census

Marriage Certificate

I did find this census which i thought it might have been James, parents (James/Margaret) but then found a subsequent 1881 census for the same person therefore it could not have been my ancestor.

I am hoping he is lost in ancestry's transcription somewhere and those of you that have other sites may be able to find something for :D
