    Amanda, that's the way the enumerator notes the relationship -- James as a son of Sarah:

    Name / Estimated Birth Year / Birthplace / Relationship / Occupation
    Sarah Moore 1826 [age 35] Scotland Head [Widow] House Keeper
    James Moore 1851 [age 10] Lpool Son Scholar
    William M Moore 1859 [age 2] Lpool Son Scolar
    Andrew Marshall 1835 [age 26] Hull Pottens Boarder [Unmarried] Joiner

    Above all the same reference as previously given you by uksearch.

    HTH,
    Trish

    I am looking for the death records for james senior( Sarah's husband).
    He is showing with family on 1851 census born 1817 Isle of Man.
    I am having problems locating his birth records and thought i would try his death records.
    I have checked freebmd and also lancsbmd with no luck there i'm afraid.
    Can anybody help with this?
    Much appreciated

    Amanda,

    The Civil Registration Index shows 4 possible entries for the death of your James MOORE in Liverpool if he died some time between 1858 [just before son William was born] and 1861. As it happens, all occured in 1859.

    These findings are based on the assumption that the family was living in Liverpool at the time of his death. Were they at the same address in 1851 as in 1861 and 1871?

    Also, it may help to keep in mind that census information was often either wrongly reported or wrongly recorded [or both] so there's always the possibility, however remote, that he was alive in 1861 but not living with his wife and family and that Sarah -- for any one of a number of reasons -- gave her marital status as widow.
