I am researching my family history, and have got back as far as my
grandfather, Methewsalem Evans (have seen that name spelt many different
ways!) I have received some details from an 1851 census,which I think may be
the correct family I am chasing,(I have details of Methewsalem"s emigration,
marriage, etc.....) but his father John is not listed as HEAD of the family
in 1851..I can only assume he may have been deceased by then... hence I am
trying to search for the 1841 census for the same family, to see if John was
listed then, as that would give me ,hopefully, a way of finding out more
about him. I have pasted the details I received below, and wondered if
anyone may be able to help me with some lookups...Thank you for your time!
