Narrative

1841 Census of England:
Leader: Robert 75 and Margaret 70.
Also in house: Moy, Margaret 75  [A bit confusing - Robert & Margaret (nee Moy) Leader fit ages from burials. Who is the second Margaret Moy? Original nearly illegible so relying on transcript for names - SJL]

[Follow-up - Mystery of the two Margaret Moys above solved:

Robert Leader 75, Ag Lab; Margaret Leader 70; Margaret Moy 95. All born in county. In own home. Next door and next door but one are the Bond family who may be respectively the siblings and parents of Susan Bond, the mother of Jane Aldridge. Clearer copy found. - SJL]

[NB in the 1841 Census people over 15 had their ages rounded *down* to the nearest five - so they may be up to 75-80 years old giving a birth range of 1761-1771. - SJL]
