Can anyone help find my Ggrandfather Charles Elliot before 1871 . I feel he was born around 1853, and he is missing on 1861 and 1871 censuses. He gives his POB as Smallbury, which may be Smallburgh, and also as Norwich. From his marriage cert. his father was William and a sailor. I keep coming back to this dead end but cannot crack it.

The confusion is that in 1881 he says he was born in London

Thanks for your prompt reply...yes that is his marriage. I have checked for him London and Norfolk, but every possible lead has been wrong so far. He had a "nephew" living with him in 1891, Charles W Lynes from Honing, so have double checked his family looking for Elliot connections too.
