        Mmmm you not on your own Mike, I can't see them either, not unless he was previously married and the two elder ones are from that marriage? though it doesnt help you find them in 51.

                Hi There

                Sorry about delay in replying , my wife organised my life for a couple of days!!!

                Yes I have had William as per 1851 census since 2008 bapt at St Lawrence Foleshill.
                I can't seem to find the next son Thomas bapt St Lawrence 27 Aug 1848 in the 1851 census but have him in the 1861/71 censuses.

                    so it is possible then, that from 48-55 he was on a boat? (possibly the Coventry Canal, thats the first one that springs to mind in that area!)

                      There should still be a census entry for him as they covered boats too.
