Subject: [YORKSGEN] 1841 census lookup - RIDER/RYDER
Can anyone help me?
Over the last month I have been working on my RIDER/RYDER family, and I have now successfully confirmed another generation.
William RIDER married Alice FEATHER at St Wilfrid's, Calverley in 1807. He is my gggg grandfather. His eldest son, John RIDER, had named his 4th son, Thomas Feather RIDER. This clinched the connection for me.
William and Alice RIDER/RYDER lived and died in the Calverley/Idle area. William died in 1850, Alice died in 1852 and James, one of their sons, died in 1856 aged 40. James didn't marry and I would expect the 3 of them to be living together in 1841. They all were born within the county of Yorkshire and William and Alice are likely to be recorded as 50 or 55 years old. I hope this helps.
Can anyone find them in the 1841 census? Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
