It is entirely possible, as a century back, they just went around and asked (verbally)the names/ages/occupations of the residents in one's home. Some of the census takers were not accurate at writing down names, and instead of asking the resident to spell it out for them, they just jotted down what they thought was the correct spelling. That's the issue I'm having with my family.. Palfery is the correct spelling, but some of the family records has Palfrey listed instead. It is quite frustrating, isn't it.
