    Val ..............

    Have you looked an Family Search. That's where I've found quite a lot of German/Polish etc records?

    Was he naturalized? It may be possible to find the papers.

    Once or twice, I've managed to find an entry into England, though I've forgotten where I found the record. Perhaps on FMP???

    I looked at Apprentice tax records, London Freedoms, and All UK, Naturalisation Certificates and Declarations - no joy, but it never hurts for someone else to take another look.

    Val, can you find him in directories?

    His name could be Muller with an umlaut over the u, or written Mueller

    Thanks all , and Sylvia I do have him after the marriage and up to his death and burial, just would love to find him before 1877.

    also should have said Father was also Adam Mueller/Muller

    Never found any naturalisation records, nothing.

    If you have him after marriage, do subsequent censuses give any more details in Germany for his place of birth?

    Thanks for responding Elizabeth, no nothing, and not knowing what his trade was before he came here ,and also not understanding German, I dont know which may be him on passenger lists etc.

    if you've got any German stuff you don't. understand val, id be happy to help.

    I've got a similar situation....2 German born immigrants marrying in poplar. around this time.

    luckily, I do have birth places for one side, but not for the other

    the problem with both unknowns is that we've both got very common German surnames....müller and dreher ....im meeting a friend tomorrow who's much better at this stuff than I am and she's managed to find her husbands German family to way back in germany who came to Britain at a similar time, so ill pick her brains.

    good luck

    ooh greyingrey that would be great,
    I know this is going to sound stupid but, if he came here from Germany ,would he have gone to America first, what would the route be?
    And is this the German word for Turner?? Besetzung
    thanks
