Re: 1881 U.K. Census at Blackmore Site

In Reply to: 1881 U.K. Census at Blackmore Site by Blackmore Site of 1004

I found another Blackmore Family who are listed with the name BACKMORE (see below). The remaining family are also on the 1891 census and so I am sure that they really are Blackmore's.

The reason I found this family is that I have been searching unsuccessfully for my gg grandfather William Blackmore. Two of his children are living in Bickington (with the incorrect name Thorne, described as sister in law) with his married eldest daughter. My William (born in Burrington about 1827) had the occupation Railway Inspector on most documentation, and so I thought this was him - however his wife Ann died in 1876. I have still to find him somewhere on the 1881 census. In 1891, I found him under the name Blackmon, living in Braunton
