These are the census results for Henry Meigh. Can anyone find him in 1861 please? His wife has been listed as all sorts....marriage name being Porrowse Barker. I'm not interested in her at this stage. I believe he will be in Staffordshire/Stoke on Trent in 1861. He possibly has a sister, Leah and his mother could be named Caroline. This is info from the 1851 census but I'm not 100% confident that this is correct without seeing an 1861 return. There is another Henry Meigh floating around Staffordshire who is about 4 years younger than this one. He was born Hanley.

Have you looked on ancestry? I have had a quick look but nothing has jumped out.

This is actually for a friend of mine. He subscribes to Ancestry. We sat together at the office yesterday looking for him....me on FMP and him on Ancestry. What I suspect has happened, he was illegitimate (or so it appears if the 1851 census is correct) and his mum married and they used the new name on the 1861 census either intentionally or accidentally as sometimes happened. I can't find a marriage that would tally though. Maybe the mum died?

I did find Henry's baptism and marriage on Familysearch....there's a thought - there was a fathers name on that. Maybe Paul will find them armed with that bit of info? I'll have another look tonight

Hi Mel,

There are a handful of family trees on ancestry for Caroline Meigh and children Leah and Henry. They have Caroline marrying in 1860 to a Thomas Birch. There is a Caroline Birch on the 1871 census aged 49 born Longton and living in Longton, Stoke on Trent with a 19 year old daughter Sarah A Meigh, both their occupations are (potter) cup handler. This seems to match the 1851 census. It doesn`t look as though anyone has found them in the 1861 census.

They also have Caroline marrying a Herbert Anderson in the Oct. 1871 and then dying in 1877, but it too is unconfirmed.

Just thought I would mention it.

Regards,
Mo

Thanks Mo, I'll pass that info to Paul - his own tree is on Ancestry. He's quite new to research and has tripped up here and there.

Thanks again

Hi Martin, I have forwarded your email to Paul and also sent you a reply. I'm not sure if my reply will reach you though, yahoo seems to have problems accepting my address sometimes

I had another look at this today - I like a good mystery :D
No joy - even searching for Caroline and/ or Henry with no surnamw
A couple of incidental things tho ( that you might even already have worked out)
I think it highly likely that Henry had a twin, Emily. Staffs bmd show two Meigh children, mother's maiden name Meigh, b 1847. The reference numbers are consecutive. I looks like Emily died before she was 1.
!861 shows a Leah Meigh, daur, but if you look at the census image, you'll see the age had been moved from the male column to the female one. There's a Meigh child with the weird name of Shei, mother's maiden name Meigh. Ancestry has a phot of the birth cert, showing that it was a male. I*t's difficult to tell, but it's possible the name was Lhei (still weird). I wonder whether that's the child shown as Leah on teh 1861 census.
There are loads of Meigh children on Staffs bmd with a mother maiden name of Meigh. She must have been a Leaver in another life :lol:
