Could someone please help me with a check of the 1851 census.
I looked it up at the library a couple of nights ago, but now can't understand my own notes. I searched for Samuel Stevens, born abt 1805. I've written down what I think is an entry, but now I'm uncertain because the only thing I've noted is his occupation as mariner. No location, or reference! I'm not sure whether I dreamt the entry. If it's possible, could someone please check for me to 1) confirm such an entry actually exists; 2) the address of the entry; 3) whether anyone else was at the same address. My recollection is that it was in Devon, but I'm not 100% certain.
The census for 1861, 1871 & 1881 list his birthplace as Drewsteignton, Devon.
These senior moments of mine are so tedious!
Thank you.
