Francis Family 1861 Census

Postby FlintK » Tue May 21, 2019 6:57 pm

Hello,
Trying to find the following Francis family on 1861 census. 1851 has them living in Rusper Sussex John aged 20, Susanna 24, James 6, Henry 3, Mary A 1 . 1871 has them in Speldhurst Kent with children John,Harriett,Ellen,Frederick,Robert and Thomas. Tried variant spellings of surname but no luck on Ancestry. Any help as always appreciated.
Thank you.

Marriage was John Francis + Susan Flint, 4 Dec 1844, Warnham, Sussex?

So hopefully they should be in the Rusper/Horsham area in 1861 - that is if they were recorded, and the return hasn't been lost.
Look for Nunnery Farm?
There's James Scott, Farmer, at The Nunnery in Rusper
