Finding Maud Nickson on 1911 Census Brick Wall

Postby tpiy » Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:23 pm

I am usually quite good at breaking down Brick Walls using Wild Cards but this one has me stumped. I am trying to locate Maud Nickson, Dorothy Ivy Nickson and John William Nickson on the 1911 Census in Salford.

Details I am sure of:-

Maud Birkenhead born Barnton 1876 married John Nickson born 1870(69) from Winsford.
Maud and John appear on 1901 census with 3 children living at 13 Garfield Street Salford.
Children in 1901 are John William Nickson born 1897 born Lostock Grahlam, Reginald Digby Nickson born 1898 and who died 1901, and Edward Victor Nickson born Feb 1901.
Maud and John had one more child Dorothy Ivy Nickson born 1904 (registered Barton), and another just found on Lancashire Parish Clerks called Joseph Alexander Birkenhead Nixon born 1903.
In 1911 John Nickson (1870) appears to be living with his Birkenhead inlaws and their son Victor is living with grandparents William Henry and Susan Birkenhead.

I would be grateful if anybody can locate 1911 census details for Maud (may also have middle name Alice) Nickson, John William Nickson, Dorothy Ivy Nickson and Joseph Alexander Birkenhead.

Thank you tpiy

John Nickson is not with his inlaws.... the Birkenheads on this 1911 Census are younger than John.... Perhaps they are siblings of Maud? Strange if it is him that he is 'single'.

Has the John Nickson on this 1911 the same occupation as other Census entries?

( full name - Edward Victor Dodd NICKSON )

Hi Trace. These were the siblings of Maud which led me to be sure that this was the correct John Nickson despite the listing as single which was incorrect. Thanks Paul

They can't have moved far as Dorothy married in Barton I Reg Dist in 1932 and Joseph A B died in Barton I Reg Dist in 1923....

I wonder if the missing family members were perhaps in hospital, or even the local workhouse?

Do you know if this Maud Nickson would have lived in the Cary Castle area of Torquay at any time? I have a set of books with an inscription inside but no date. The books are 1913 first editions.
