I am trying to find a date and place of birth for Henry Savage.
In the 1841 census his age is given as 30 and he is living in York with his wife Elizabeth Learman (married York 1836) and Miriam Savage (his sister ??) aged 15. In the 1881 census his age is shown as 74 and his place of birth is shown as Glasgow Scotland.

I would look for him in the death certificates on Scotlands People - his name isn't that common and you know he was alive in early 1881, so that'll limit the number of people to check. I'd also look for him in earlier census returns (all the 19th century ones are on SP) when he was younger and certain to have provided the information himself. In the 1881, there's a chance that one of his childern gave the info. You says that you have the 1841 enry - does it show him as having been born in Scotland?

Hi Lesley
In the 1841 and 1851 census Henry's place of birth is Scotland ,I can't find him in the 1861 census , in 1871 he is living with his son John ( my wifes G grandfather) ,its only in the 1881 census it mentions Glasgow . There is a death record for a Henry Savage in York for the June 1/4 1894 aged 86 and that ties in with details of his birth .
In the 1841 census it mentions a Miriam Savage aged 15 ,I think she is his sister ,I have looked for BMD details in the York area thinking if I found her marriage it would give their fathers details ,but I can find absolutely nothing .Hope these details might help ,thanks for taking the trouble to respond .
All the best Dave

Are the 1841/51 Censuses in Scotland or England?If his sister died in Scotland it may be possible to track down her Death/further Census entries.
Savage is not a common surname in Scotland I grew up with a friend who is a Savage but don't know how intrested she is in FH.

Hi Joette
Sorry , I should have mentioned the census details . Henry Savage is living in York and is in the census for 1841 (HO 107/1355/4 ) , 1851 HO107 2353 ,through to 1891 ,he died I believe in 1894 in York aged 86 .
If any fellow members of the clan can help that would be great.
Thanks Dave
