Can anyone check the 1881 census for me please - RG11; Piece: 1413; Folio: 69; Page: 6

Female child 3 months of John E Titchmarsh, she is transcribed as N Titchmarsh, but could it be a V?

The eldest child is H V Titchmarsh for Horace Victor Titchmarsh

My guess is that it is N. I think if it were a V it wouldn't have such a long first stroke.

Not sure, but it does look rather similar to half of the letter W which appears further up the page in the name Walter, and not very like the other N which apppears on the bottom line (I think!)

Thanks for looking, do you think it looks like the second initial of her older brother?
