    Default Fox family in 1861

    Hi all
    I have been looking for the following people on the 1861 census but have had no luck
    Benjamin Fox b 1820-1835
    Annie his wife b c 1834
    Children James 1856
    Joseph 1858
    Hannah 1860
    All the children’s births were registered in the Dudley reg. district which covers Staffordshire and Worcestershire.
    The family emigrated to New Zealand on the Echunga which arrived in Lyttleton December 1862.

    Benjamin is a labourer, I don't know where the parents were born as I am working backwards from their shipping records.

    Thank you for that, it was the 1861 I was looking for but the 1841 & 51 would also be great.

    Thank you, I think I have found Mary, now a widow, still living at Edgmond in 1861 but still no sign of Benjamin.
