I think these might be my people in 1841, but of course I'm searching on Ancestry, so even with all options open they seem to think therfe were only 6 Friswells of any spelling in Bedworth and Foleshill in 1841, so I can't find the image. *frustrated*

Oh how I feel your frustration. Once you get back to about 1790ish every piddling village has a handful of John & Anns, or William & Marys or Thomas & Susans or Joseph & Janes that are not quite the right fit. I've got zillions of examples. I know they are all related somehow, but how is the tricky bit.

But even more recently, my gt gt grandfather William Williams managed to provide 5 different birth years and 5 different (but equally plausible) birth places on 5 censuses. He's the only chap I have on so many. Worse still, the blighter refuses to die or be buried and so does his wife Susan!

I think your John could be the one in post #8 with (second) wife Mary, AN. There is a link in that post.

Edit - oh, maybe not, just reread the stuff about the different baptisms!

FreeCEN says 100% transcriptions done for Warwickshire on the 1841, so you could search on there:
https://www.freecen.org.uk/search_queries/new?locale=en

Their transcriptions should be way more accurate.

Thanks, that helps.

I see the address on this one is Bull and Butch Yard, rather than Bull and ***** Yard, which we had before and which sounded like more fun.
