I know the 1861 isn't well-indexed, nor easy to read, based on prior posts here... However, recent breakthroughs, and the chance for a serious confirmation mean I have to ask:
I am looking for the family of Joseph and Jane Hyams in the 1861 census. In 1871, they were in Mile End at 15 Dunk, with son Zadoc. In 1851, I believe THIS family to be them:
HO107/1543 f 649 (No.8 Eastmans Court, Spitalfields, Whitechapel)
I need the 1861 to confirm it, but I cannot find anything to guide locating them. I believe that they were not yet at Dunk ST., based on information I received in my last lookup request. However, the name 'Zadock Hyams' is rather rare, so finding a 'Zadock Hyams' with some of the children of that 1851 family would certainly concrete my suspicions. I do not know about the Eastmans court address in spitalfields.
I am from New Jersey, USA, and don't know all the neighborhoods of Manhattan, much less London. I know Spitalfields and WHitechapel and Mile End are very close, and realize it's tough to find MY Hyams family in that tightly packed area, but I appeal to whoever here CAN do a lookup like this, and loves a challenge... I know that a Joseph and Jane Hyams are Zadock's parent's from his marriage and death certificates from Brooklyn, NY. I know that my Joseph and Jane married in 1837 from FreeBMD and the GRO certificate... From the Great Synagogue records, I know that on 5 Nov 1841, they had a daughter, Maria, and from the 1871 and 1881 censuses, by comparisons, I know that he had a brother, Samuel. from Doreen Berger's Jewish Victorian, I know that Jane died in 1878. However, tying the 1851 Census Hyams family to MY Hyams family can only be done by bridging that gap with the 1861. Zadock was born in Nov 1851, based on his 1900 US census return, and a comparison of his 1871 UK census and his 1872 Immigration ship manifest provide evidence backing this up. That birthdate means he wouldn't be on the 1851, just the 1861 and 1871, as by Jan 1872, he was in Brooklyn.
I am VERY confident of those solid conclusions I have, but if I could bridge 1851 and 1871 with 1861, then I might be able to confidently tie in a whole second branch of my tree, recently found by a woman who contacted me after seeing my prior posts here.
The last thing I can offer is that in America, at least, Zadock, using the similar sounds of 'dock' and 'dick' adopted the name Richard, which, meaning 'Just,' holds about the same meaning as Zadock, or 'righteousness/charity.' (so if you find a Joseph and Jane in 1861 with a Richard, that could well be the right family).
Finally, I thank anyone who tries their skill at this problem, and if I've missed anything, please ask so I can provide any other clues to help.
