View Full Version : Lax - 1851 - 1861 census help please
26-01-2006, 11:07 PM
Would SKS please help me track this family. (I think their New Year resolution for 1844 was to become elusive!)
John Lax born c. 1792 (? Hull) and Mary Wilson born c. 1895 (? Hull) were married 29 Mar 1814 Sculcoates, Yorks (per Hugh Wallis' site).
I think I have some correct children:
William ch 1818 Holy Trinity, Hull;
George ch 1821 Holy Trinty (conflicting birth as 1822)[George was a Professor of music & this downline produced many muscians/music teachers etc];
Charles b.c. 1824;
Elizabeth b.c. 1833.
As you can see large gaps between siblings!
I am hoping the census may help,
Many, many thanks
