    Can't find this Edward James (I have 3:eek:) in the 1881 census, he was born in 1825 in Holborn, Middlesex and I can't find a death for him. Can someone please see if they can find him in the 1881? His wife died in 1871, so he may be living alone or could have remarried.

    1851 HO107 1527 351 8
    1861 Sorry can't find the reference for this or find it on FMP! He was at 3 Frere(?) St, Battersea
    1871 RG10 703 144 24

    Would he be the Edward James Goodwin living at 4 Boswell Court, in St Andrew's Holborn-above-the-Bars?

    He is there in the 1883 electoral register... up to and including 1889

    Probably not if he was in Battersea in 1871 :(

    There's a death in the Strand RD in 1875 for an Edward Goodwin, age 48 (a bit out for yours), just thought if he fell on hard times and went to the workhouse I think the Strand one might have taken in people born in Holborn ... Not sure o_O

    Is it possible he moved out of the county? did he have family he could have moved in with?

    Oh, I'd be surprised if this wasn't him. His age is as right as you'll ever get for both the 1871 and 1861 censuses (the latter is RG9 / 221 / 124 / 23 - Shoe Lane, St Brides, City of London - where Edward says he was born). His daughter Lydia appears to be a servant with the Spiller family in Clapham/Wandsworth in 1881 (RG11 / Piece 632 Fol. 68 p. 9).

    Death certificate time methinks (I haven't spent anyone else's money for a long time!! ;))

    Thank you everyone for your help, it's much appreciated:) I've had a somewhat hectic day, so need to go away and sort it out. I just may have to let Flook spend some of my money:D
