Hi,

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

Thanks

Gareth

Hi Sharon,

The transcribing I have done of the marriage certificate James Williams father does not have a middle name it is "James Wil-" on the next line is "liams"

Thanks for looking into this much appreciated.
