    Can anyone find the following family in the 1871 census please? I've tried looking under individual children's name too. They were living in Stone in the 1861 census.

    John Bradley b.1838 in Darenth, Kent, but he may have died in 1866
    Emma b. c.1836 in Suffolk
    Jemima Ellen b.1860 Stone, Kent
    Alfred John b.1863 Stone, Kent
    John b.1867 Stone, Kent

    Sorry Sis, not what I had planned, a phone call [rather important] mid search & I looked for Jemma instead of Emma. :oops:
    Edit:-
    This is the one I had intended to find. Not found her as a separate person before this marriage & Owen May seems not to have married before.
    Marriages Mar 1870
    Bradley Emma + May Owen- Dartford 2a-398

    Thank you both very much. I can access (for free!) the original marriage records for Stone, so will go take a look.
