Henry Vickery 26 Ropemaker Street St Luke's
Looking for information on my great-great grandfather, Henry Vickery, born City of London c1814 and who was a master tailor according to the 1861 Census.
red mail Mary Ann Turner and Lewis Turner
Am looking for both Mary Ann Turner and Lewis Turner. We have come to a block on research as we think Lewis Turner took his wife's surname and could have been Lewis Moss. In 1881 census they are in Finsbury and have 2 children - George (my grandfather) and Emily. We have found a Lewis Moss in the 1871 census but nothing before then. It looks as if he could have been a traveller so was not registered before this date at all. Hope someone can shed some light on the mystery of why he may have changed his surname from Moss to Turner.
