Hiya, I am looking for information on my great great grandfather, whose name was Rudolf Mikkisch. The spelling of the first name varies, as does the surname, but that is definitely the correct version of his name. I have marriage and death details for him (he passed away in an accident aged 44, in Essex). I am trying to find out when he came to the country (from Prussia) and his whereabouts up until his marriage in 1887 to Grace Ann Webber. I think I have found him on the 1871 census but having no joy with the 1881. Any info gratefully received. We are fairly sure he travelled to the UK alone (looking for work) but I'm not sure if he came here officially, as such, or how, or when..
