I have found Emily Stevens 1863 Exeter (Emily Stevings married Ernest Webber 1890)
William Stevings 1865 "
Ruth Stevings 1869 "
I know their parents are William and Elizabeth Jane Stevings nee Connett , he was a basket maker and their address was Cowick Street,Exeter when their children were baptised.
I have had no luck in finding William snr on any census, he married Elizabeth k/a Jane in 1860 at St Thomas the Apostle,Exeter.
Can you find him on the census??? pleeeeease.

Wow yes that's them. Never thought of that variation of spelling. Thanks ever so much. I now know that William was not born in Exeter, where I have been looking.

I searched without a surname and put "basket" in the keyword thingy and up they popped.
