Hi, I'm trying to find out some more information about Thomas Ford, he doesn't seem to appear on the census until he marries Mary-Jane Mellor - I know quite a bit about their life after they got married but like I said, struggling to find anything pre-wedding.

Here's what I know;

Thomas Ford - born roughly 1856 in Leeds, Yorkshire
Father was John Ford who was a horse dealer (this is from the wedding certificate)

Any information would be greatly recieved

Thank You

Only a thought, could he have Romany background? There is an Anne-Marie Ford who has written many books on the subject. Some Romany may be described as horse dealers and there may be more reason to miss a census if they were travelling. Could be completely wrong though.

Hi, thanks for your reply, this has crossed our mind - I have done some digging and found a Thomas Ford on Freebmd born in 1856 in Leeds so think we are going to try and order the certificate to see if its him and hopefully this may give us some more information.

Once again thank you for your reply
