Whilst researching for a client today, I was trying to locate her maternal great grandmother on the 1871 census. I completed the relevant fields, and one match came out as follows:
As you can see in the second entry down, we have a family with the surname Massey, no first names, just their ages and their relation to each other. We know that they lived at 33 Upper William Street, Marylebone, London and that’s about it. In the column for rank or profession, someone has written “left his house on Monday morning – information from another lodger.”
Has anyone else come across something like this in their research before?
