    Hannah seems to have been baptised 1 July 1837.
    Henry and Ann were living in Powerstock but Henry was a Labourer.

    As Tamara has asked, please tell us what else you know about Henry. Do you have him in other census?

    I have found a Henry Curtney baptised in Powerstock 18 Sep 1796 son of John and Mary.
    On 15 Feb 1820 a Henry Courtney married an Ann Partridge in Powerstock. Witnesses: John Partridge and Faney(Fanny?)Courtney.
    Is this helpful?

    Am I reading this wrong or maybe my calculator needs new batteries?
    There seems to be a discrepancy in the age given for Henry.

    1841 - Henry Courteny age 40, Blacksmith living Powerstock
    so born 1801.

    1851 - Henry b1793 Powerstock blacksmith
    Oh! not to worry, tis only 8 years.
