Hello Mike (Davies), |
In 1891, Thomas Walsh was living at 26, Collins Lane. Occupation: Labourer.
In 1901, Thomas Welsh was living at 31, Collins Lane.
On both the 1891, and 1901 Censuses, the names and dates of birth of Thomas’ wife and children tally. Therefore, the family at 26, Collins Lane, in 1891, and the family at 31, Collins Lane, in 1901, are one and the same.
As Thomas’ attestation papers show his occupation as Labourer, and his home address as 32, Collins Lane, I would say that this is enough evidence to prove that you have the correct family. Though, if you’re still in doubt, if you’d like to send me a copy of Thomas’ attestation papers, I could compare them with the Census information.
