    Is it this guy from the 1881 English census

    The best, quickest place for a free search is the Mormon Family Records at

    http://www.familysearch.org/eng/sear...rch_census.asp

    The above link is for census records, but lots of choices in the left hand column. In my case, they have most Scottish church records on microfilm from the 60's and have since indexed them on line.

    Unlike the Scottish Records Office, their data base is FREE...

    Default One more link...

    ...gives the parents from the Christening records... Go to your nearest LDS (Mormon) place and ask for help. They won't try and convert you...
    Good luck with your searching.

    Hi Pat,

    Dunno if this is right but I had fun tracing it anyway

    I can see him in the 1861
    John Alfred (aged 13)
    His Father Thomas(53) "Spirit Dealer and Victualler" and Mother Elizabeth(52)
    12 Wide Street West Derby, Toxteth Park

    Brothers and Sisters:
    Matilda Arden (26)
    Mary Ann (19)
    Daniel (15)
    Joseph Olwin (11)

    Margaret Winder (10) Niece also present

    Back in the 1851 Census
    they are living in Minshal Street
    Thomas (44) Elizabeth(40)
    Brothers Richard (18), James(14), Charles(11), Daniel(5), Oliver(2)
    Sister Elizabeth(6m)
    He is John (3)

    I did a search in the 1871 just on the off chance as he would be now 24
    This might be him?
    10 Overbury Street Public House
    John(24) Head Licenced Victualler
    Harriet (20) Wife
    John (4M) Son

    Then in the 1881 they are at 1 Overbury Street
    John A(34) Head Licensed Victualler
    Harriet(40) Wife
    John A(10) Son
    Thomas(8) Son
    George F(6) Son
    Gertrude F(3) Dua

    In 1891 they are at 5 Overbury St
    John A(48) Head Carter
    Harriet M S (50) born Stockport
    Thomas (19)
    Gertrude F(14)
    George (17) Butcher
    Harold (10)
    Mabel (12)


    Hope this helps

    Mike
