Looking for John Perry, born about 1873 in Somerset (we think Yatton) had sisters Fanny (who later became Fanny Light) and Beatrice. Moved to Bedminster to live with Fanny then to Pembroke Dock, Wales where he married Dorothy Jane Morse. Want to find out who his parents were.

I've had a look at the 1881 census. All the John Perry listed on the national index at the time were in Somerset. I have scanned through but can't find any of them aged about the age you state, having a sister called Beatrice (Bessie yes!). I located a Fanny Perry aged 17 born in Yatton, but she had left home and was living with another family. There are 2 Beatrice Perry in Somerset, but no Brother called John. How sure are you that John was his real name? Is it possible it was a middle name, or a preferred name he chose later in life?
There are no John Perry born in Yatton by the way. Let me know if you want more detailed info.

Thanks for your message

I have just got the 1881 census so have been searching for my John Perry, he is proving really elusive, I know he was definately called John as I have his marriage certificate, he married in Pembroke Wales but didn't move there till after 1890, Can't seem to find any records for him in Somerset or any neighbouring counties, his father was called Edward and I have a record of a Edward and Sarah Perry living in Yatton but no record for them in the 1881 census (they may have died by then). Johns name is on Fanny Perrys Marriage licence in 1890 but can't find any other evidence that he was ever in Somerset (I still have a living relative who says she used to visit him in Yatton Somerset).

I am well and truley stuck

Thanks again Craig but unfortunately this isn't him, I know he married a Dorothy Jane Morse in Pembroke Dock, Pembroke, i am wondering whether he wasn't actually born in Yatton, its just really weird that I can't find him in any of the nearby counties, I know he went to live with his sister Fanny when she got married in 1890 and lived in Bedminster Bristol.

Thanks again

Sue

Sorry, I only got my info from the 1881 LDS CD rom. The 1901 census is online now, so it might be worth you trying that.

Good Luck.
