Do you know that he was alive in 1901?

He was a witness at his sister Jane's wedding in 1907 in Embleton, Northumberland.

Sorry Raven I can't see him. Is there any chance he was in either the Army or Navy?

Still looking..:eek: pass the paracetamol please!

I know it makes little difference, but was he anywhere obscure in 1891?

by 1901is he more likely to be lonesome on his own-some , or with a wife & kids?

Raven - Howick (nr. Alnwick) isn't a million miles from the Scottish border. Is it possible they strayed north for one census?

Uncle John,

Have tried there as well.. Edward's father Robert was born in Peeblesshire. I thought he might have gone to visit family but I can't see him...

There is an Edward Russell listed on Kevin Asplin's Boer War site

Russell, Edward 23738, Private 63rd Coy., 1st Bn. I.Y.

- a possibility I suppose.
