Please could someone who has access to the above census records for the Croydon/Balham areas of London/Surrey please look up the Weston Family - namely Henry Weston who I believe was born in Croydon in 1880.
Any help in tracing his parents and siblings woud be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.

All children unless stated born Croydon. On 1881 census James is a lodger with unnamed wife and it gives both their ages as 30. This could be a second wife!

Thanks for your reply.
Was there a Henry Weston, son, born 1880 in Croydon area? I think he was a cycle maker in Balham in 1901.

Thanks for your help everyone.
I am looking for the family of Henry Weston. In 1901 he was 19 and a cycle maker living in Balham. He married in 1902 in Croydon and his subsequent children were all born in Croydon.
He would have been born in the Balham/Croydon area and would have been about 8/9 years old. Can anyone locate him?
I have already given you the information surely, he is the Harry on the 1891 census. Here he is in 1881:-
2 Townley Cottages, Croydon, Surrey RG11/0814 Folio 120 Page 37
They are lodgers with Mary Ann Hogan.
James Weston Lodger 30 Bricklayer
Unnamed Wife 30
James Weston son 6
Thomas Weston son 5
Frederick Weston son 3
Henry Weston son 1
No birth places are given nor the name of James's wife so the information must have been given by someone who was unaware of the facts, probably Mary Ann Hogan.
In 1901 James is still going strong and fathering children:-

Elizabeth wife 45 Laundress Born London St Lukes
Arthur son 19
Nora Dau 17
Eliza Dau 15
Charlie son 8
Frederick son 5
Albert son 3
Eliza Seeley Mother in law 85 Born Cork Ireland
Thomas Seeley Father in law 83 Born Cork Ireland
All Children born Croydon. Points of note; Nora is Ann N on 1881 and Annie on 1891. Frederick on 1881 does not appear on 1891 census, they have another Frederick by 1901 so first one must have died. The presence of the parents in law give you Elizabeth's maiden name. I cannot locate your Henry in 1901 although you say he was at Balham aged 19.
