Thank you so very much for this census record! I had almost given up hope of ever finding any further information as the 1852 census for Toronto is missing. This shows me that the John Askin in the Toronto directories is very very likely my ancestor! I am literally jumping for joy...yay!! And there was another child as well...a son. This is great!
Thank you also for the tip on where to persue further information. I will check into this right away. You made my day...actually you made my month!
