Subject: Yet another error on 1901 census.

For those people researching the RAINBIRD name, descendents of James and Lucy RAINBIRD who moved to Romford from Berners Roothing. It appears that their son John was no longer co-habiting with his wife and children in 1901. He was living with his parents but his wife Eliza was untracable as were his children. I still have not managed to find Sidney, his eldest son, but his wife and children were living in Penge, Kent. They are indexed as RAMBIRD, and they were living with a Blacksmith by the name of James MUIR.
This might explain why The 2 edlest sons paid £18 each to buy themselves out of the Essex Regiment in 1899, because their parents spilt up.
I have informed the PRO and we wait to see if it gets corrected.
