Hi,

Can someone retrieve for me:

John Wisker, in the census of 1871. He was born in Kingston upon Hull in 1846 and must have resided in London. He worked as a newspaper writer/journalist and was possibly married with a wife named Ann or Annie. I found a candidate in a village near Hull, but the profession of that man was too divergent.

Thanks,
Hans

Can you give us details of which census returns you have found him in and the details recorded, please? (So that we can refer to these when searching.) Is your John s/o William & Esther?
There was quite an extended W(h)isker family in Hull and the villages in Holderness (to the east.)

Dear Janet,

I found him before in the censuses of 1851+61, living with his family. Do you know more of this family in Hull and environment?

Not of John's specific family, no.
There were several W(h)iskers who were farmers in some of the Holderness villages. One family from Halsham had a daughter Ann Elizabeth, who married a builder in my extended family. The couple emigrated to Nebraska and a few years later Ann's brother Daniel Whisker joined them.
Haven't chased up Ann & Daniel's family as I don't usually do "married ins."

Guessing this is him, emigrated to Australia?
