View Full Version : Census lookup please

I would be most grateful if SKS could lookup Joseph & Mary Devey on the 1851 census. I found them on the 1841 census living at (Pensnett) Kingswinford, Joseph was 50 and Mary was 45 however I was surprised to see that Mary was recorded as not born in county. I am hoping that the 1851 census may say where she was born so if anyone has access to this record it would help no end.
Thank you for your time

Thanks a lot Awgen, This seems to be the right record as Mary's maiden name was Wise which is the same as the lodger on this record. On the 1841 census Mary was 45 so the estimated date of birth would be quite a bit out but it is an estimate. Can't seem to find anywhere in Worcestershire named
'Ninbachin' but its great to know the county.
much appreciated

Had a quick look at the image and it looks like Ninbachin.

In 1841 exact ages where not given, I believe they where rounded up/down to the nearest five.

Sorry to bother you again but is this image 1841 or 1851?
Even with the +/- 5, 1788 is a long way from 1804 so the only thing I can think is that Mary was christened at the age of abt 11-16.
Thanks again
