Thread: Slim chance of an answer but I am asking anyway

    Default Slim chance of an answer but I am asking anyway

    Can anyone out there in Orgland help I wonder. I am looking for an address of one WILLIAM CORNER, BASKET MAKER of WICK. He was definitely in working in 1901.
    Any information would be most helpful and gratefully received
    Thank you

    The 1901 Census for Wick shows us four William Corners of working age in Wick. There’s a 57-year-old Farmer and his son aged 19 a Mason Builder. Their address is recorded as Ganscliff No1.
    There’s a 28-year-old Crofter at No 4 Corbigoe (Old Hall).
    There’s a 37-year-old Ironmonger at 53 Willowbank. He might be your best bet
