Census details

  • Francis John was named first in the census taken on the night of 6th June 1841. Others in the house included Frances Blake and Susannah Margaret Blake, but no relationships were recorded in this census. The address was King Street, Norwich St George Tombland, Norfolk, England. He was aged 39 years.. They had 2 servants.
  • In the census taken on the night of 30th March 1851 Francis John was the head of the household. The address was Norwich St George Tombland, England. His daughter Frances was living with him, along with 3 servants.
  • In the census taken on the night of 7th April 1861 Francis John was the head of the household. The address was Norwich St George Tombland, England. His daughter Frances was living with him, along with a grandson named Francis W J BLAKE and 3 servants. I am not sure where the grandson came from (but he was born 1851 in Swanton Abbott) as I have not found any sons of Francis John.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1871, Francis John was the head of the household. The address was Norwich St George Tombland, England., along with 3 servants and 2 visitors, the vicar of Longham with Wendling, Norfolk and his wife.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: The 10 year old grandson, Francis W J BLAKE, could only be Francis William Jex BLAKE, who is the son of Willima Lubbock Jex Jex BLAKE and Susannah Margaret BLAKE. The resolves the 'issue', both his parents were BLAKEs.
