A Curate has already been ordained.
A Curate is a clergyman who has the 'cure' (charge) of souls in a parish. He
is chosen by the 'patron' and admitted to the 'cure of souls' by the Bishop
of the Diocese. The Curate was often in fact a young clergyman appointed to
assist a Vicar or Rector of a largish parish, although he could be, and
often was, the incumbent himself.
The date has no bearing on the matter.
When I tried the link to the census, it says the census is not on line. Did it shut down only after 2 days online again?

accurate and clear explanation from the American side of the pond. As
late as the 1980's, and perhaps still in some places in the Anglican
Catholic Church in the U.S., the assistant priest is called the curate,
although he has no claim to succession. Liz Stirling in Illinois

I haven't seen this before so hopefully it will be helpful for anyone
trying to find unknown family members using only the free online index. You
need to have already found one of the parents in the Index. It also helps
if the family has a relatively uncommon surname.
1. From the person you already have make a note of the Census Place and the
id number (shown on the task bar when you hover the mouse over the icon in
the image column).
2. Select Advanced Person Search
3. Enter the following only:
Gender (e.g. if searching for the wife or daughter of the person
known enter Female)
Marital Condition (Married if searching for a spouse, otherwise
leave blank if searching for children
Relation to Head Of Family (Wife, Son Daughter or Head if
searching for Husband)
Place Keyword (I use the minimum necessary with wild card in case
Limit Results To (Enter 30)
5. Move the mouse over the icons in the Image column looking for an entry
with the same id number as the person you already have. Continue through
all the names in case there are more than one, which is quite possible with
children. If you find a number that is adjacent to the one you have then
note that entry also. If there are more than 30 entries continue to check
The entries you have noted with the same id numbers are on the same census
page as the person you have and are probably from the same family.
Occasionally a family entry may spill over onto another page hence the need
to look also for adjacent id numbers.
Repeat as necessary for Sons, Daughters etc.
Hope this helps, it's worked for me and helped me to discover some unknown
children and wives.

Thenks to Duncan Wier especially, and many others who helped me with tips on
searching this Census.
Among other things, I have found:-
Wm Salter 70 Devon Llymbree Of Glamorgan Newcastle Lr Inn Keeper.
Now He was born in Plymtree, but the translator had been struggling with all
those Welsh names!
He was son of John Salter and Mary Ireland who married in
Plymtree20.10.1814. Has anyone else descendents of John and Mary ? I have
details of ascendents, and of William's family down to Julie living in USA,
but many blanks.
Could someone please lookup prudence ackland in the 1881 census. She was born at shirwell town in 1818.
Also a John Ackland born Bittadon in 1847 and wife Prudence born 1852 ?
I appreciate your help.
One way was through the army, to both professions.
Also my father (son of janitor) received a scholarship to "Lincoln Cathedral School" he became Head Boy in his last year and went on to Salisbury Cathedral as a Preacher.
