Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I am looking for John Spencer in any of the census records. I dont know when or where John was born but he married Mary Bailey 7 Jan 1810 in Portsea Hampshire.
There they had children all born Portsea
William 1810, Elizabeth 1812,
Mary Ann 1818, Sarah 1818
Henry Bailey 1823
I am the 5th greatgrandaughter of this couple. Hopefully they are in a census record that will lead me to John's and Mary's birth place.
This might be the family in 1841, living at Lake Lane, Portsea
John Spencer 54 Pensioner
Mary Spencer 45
Henry Spencer 15 Labourer
Louisa Spencer 5
George Spencer 3
All born in Hants
4 Hope Row, Portsea
Mary Spencer head widow 59 School mistress b Portsea
Elizabeth Spencer dau unmarr 39 b Portsea
Louisa Spencer dau unmarr 19 b Portsea
George Spencer son 11 b Portsea
John Dow lodger widower 53 Seaman b Gibraltar
Looks as though you’re out of luck with John.
Thanks for the Information it does help that Mary was born in Portsea as there are a few baptisms for a Mary Bailey but I wasnt sure when she was born. This will help narrow the search
