The 1841 & 1851 are notoriously difficult for finding watermen/flatmen away
I have asked before on the list, but now have more information so
thought I would try my luck again. I know it is a big ask but could SKS
lookup on the 1841 and/or 1851 census for my great grandfather and my
2xgreat grandparents their information is as follows:-
George PICKSTOCK, born about 1795, probably in Davenham, Northwich,
Cheshire, he was a Waterman.
Ann PICKSTOCK formerly Kettle, born June 1801, Davenham, Northwich, Cheshire
(I have her on the 1841 with her parents John & Sarah Kettle).
also George PICKSTOCK, born July 1845, born Davenham, Cheshire (he is not
with his parents in 1851 Census) so could be on a barge/flat with his
The assumption I have made is that Cheshire, Lancashire and Liverpool
would be the areas most likely used by the barge trade.
I would welcome any views or ideas?
