    Default Walter Curry 1851 census look-up please

    Could I ask a whether SKS would be able to do me a huge favour and look up Walter Curry born 1814, Wooler, Northumberland and his wife Janet (nee Young), also born 1814, Yetholm, Roxburgh, in the 1851 Scottish census? Their first child was born in Yetholm, a month before their marriage in 1837, but the two youngest were born in Sprouston in the mid to late 1850s. I'm desperately trying to fill in the children in between.
    Thanks.

    Waitabit, you're a star! I now have a good few children to chase up. The family must have moved around a fair bit, and were obviously reasonably well off to be able to afford servants!!
