His new partner (unmarried) is Julia Hill, but I am having difficulty in reading her place of birth.Well done finding him !
The census reference is RG9/110/60/51, and Julia Hill's entry is the penultimate. Ancestry has the place transcribed as Wisconsin, Allenton, but I feel that is incorrect.
To me it looks more like ???cestershire, Allerton.
I know there is an Allerton near Liverpool, but the county name does not look like Lancashire.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
I think it's Lancastershire (!)
Do you think William Reed did this deliberately ? To have chosen enumerators with such vile hands that they are consistently mistranscribed in census after census does seem to hint at forward planning.
