    1911 census

    This I do not understand I found a Thomas Sims born in 1899 on the census with parents but their surname seems to be Lewis on the 1901 census he is 1 year old withe right parents and siblings have they made a mistake thankyou

    I could quite easily imagine Sims being transcribed as Lewis. Which one do you mean exactly ? If I put in Thomas Lewis b1899, the first one that comes up is with his grandparents, and there could be a problem - the enumerator might have assumed the grandchildren had the same surname as the grandparents. That's been done before.

    Have you looked at the image of 1901 ?

        Is this your family in 1901 RG13; Piece: 1167; Folio: 85; Page: 1 ?
        If so then the name is definitely Sims on the image not Lewis.

        I have looked at the 1911 image and it's definitely Sims for them all but Thomas's entry does look more like Lewis!
        I have pm'd you.
