Can anyone forward the 1861 Census IMAGE for Ann Little age 26 bShoreditch, Middlesex,and her son Theophilus age 6 bOldbury, Worcs?
I think they lived at Crosscanonby, reg dist Cockermouth in 1861.
The transcription shows her husband as Benjamin, but I am pretty sure she was married to Stephen.
Many thanks, Pete

I don't know what transcription you're looking at, but the Ann Little in Crosscanonby, born Shoreditch, was age 34. Husband Benjamin (the image is quite clear) was 26. Son Theophilus was 6. I can have Ancestry "share" the image if you like, but it looks as if you may have the wrong Ann. The Ref is Piece 3942, Folio 19, Page 32.
Well, perhaps not. :) Depends on whether you want Ann to have been 26 in 1861. If so, it is the wrong family, but if not. . . .
In 1871 the husband is Stepen, and has gone from Miner to Bread Baker, and from Crosscanonby to Framwellgate, Durham. Add Agnes, 4.
Then in 1881 he is Steven, but now has a son Benjamin. He was probably Benjamin Stephen, or Steven Benjamin, or something like that, and settled on Steven.

Many thanks for this - even though I am left with a puzzle!
I am pretty sure this is the right family - all ages and places of birth match but Ann certainly married Stephen in 1855 and they had a son Theophilus in Oldbury in 1855/56. Stephen's birth place was Iron Bridge, Shropshire - is that what the image says for Benjamin?
Perhaps you would be kind enough to forward the image to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, thank you for your efforts, Regards, Pete
Did the "share" bit for the page. Seems to me that it is the same man, and that either the enumerator made a strange error in 1861, or he had both given names and switched around. A lot of people did that, from what I've read in some threads here. Do you have the marriage cert, or the birth cert for Theophilus? Might help to solve the mystery.

Thank you to both Peggy & Audrey - these will give me something to study, and some possible new names for my Tree!
