    The 1861 census of Newhall, Burton on Trent:

    RG09, piece 1963, folio 118, page 14

    I am looking for a translation for the 71-year-old John, please. The surname at the end is JEBBS (I think), the same as Alice on the line below, but I cannot make out what it says between John and his surname.

    Thank you. :)

    Fret not - I have solved it! :D

    Looking for his marriage, I stumbled across it in 1849 (he was a widower, as was Alice) and his middle name is recorded: Zacharius! :rolleyes:
