    Can't find William Henry Cryer 1881 to 1901

    I can't find William Henry Cryer born 1853 in Edenfield,Lancashire on the 1881 to 1901 census records. Got him on the 1861 & 1871 living with his parents Robert & Ellen Cryer living in Edenfield.

    Thought he might have died but think I found him on the 1911 census.
    His age is a few years out on the 1911 census. He would have been 57 or 58.
    It says 54 on the 1911 census unless he lied about his age. Cause he is a lot
    older than his wife on the 1911.

    Can't find there marriage. Looks like his wife is called Hestor

    First names and places of birth match nicely - surname is Taylor!

        Elaine beat me to it. I was just coming to the same conclusion because I think this is the wife in 1891 (Hester A R Cooper)

          I cannot see where the Taylor name comes into it.
          His parents, Robert and Ellen, are together in 1851 and 1861 ??

          1851

            Thanks Elaine & Night Owl. Yes wonder where the Taylor comes from

            He was born Willam Henry Cryer

            On the Lancashire BMD says Born 1853 William Henry Cyer mother maiden name Bamford.
            Which I know is mother was Ellen Bamford.

            He is the 7th child of Robert & Ellen. They had two more children after William.

            Hester A R Cooper thanks Night Owl.

            Wonder why he moved down south then back up north in 1911

              Hi,
              A lot of Cryers in Edenfield area. Don't know if any of this helps. A William Cryer (Coal Merchant - probably not the same as yours) married a Mary Mathews (also seen as Matthews, came from N Wales) in the 1870s and had several children, one of which was my grandmother (Jane), she also had a brother (Jim I think) who emigrated to Australia, and at least 2 sisters, One was called Ethel and the others name escapes me at the moment but she married a Spavin and they had a son who is still alive. I seem to remember that there may have been Taylors in the family as well as Wolstenholmes, Possibly Ashworths and Jacksons as well plus of course Freemans.
