1 Henry Lewis on Sun Jul 17, 2016 2:49 pm

On the 1851 census we have 2 families living in Cheltenham.

Henry Lewis born 1828 Bristol cordwainer
Mary Lewis (maiden name Cook) born 1825 Cheltenham
Mary age 1 month

George Richards born 1828 Bristol Cordwainer
Eliza born 1828 Bristol (maiden name Lewis)
Eliza age 3

According to the census George and family are lodging with Henry.

Now I have a strong feeling that Eliza (wife of George) and Henry Lewis are related.

Have both marriage certificates for the 2 marriages and according to the certificates Eliza's father is called George, while Henry's father is called Henry.  George is a wheelwright while Henry is a cordwainer both living in Bristol.

Could George and Henry be brothers or cousins, would love to find out.

Have searched ancestry and familysearch with no joy.

Has anyone access to any parish records or visiting Bristol record office.

If it would help George and Eliza were married in the Parish church of Bedminster.

Any help would be appreciated.
