According to Google, there seem to be a few Allertons -
one in North Yorkshire; Stone Allerton (or just Allerton)
in Somerset; quite a few references to Allerton in 'the
county of Lancaster', to name but a few - and the county
name looks more like Worcestershire on second viewing.
Yes, it does look like Worcestershire, but I'm not aware of any place with a
name similar to Allerton or Allenton there. But then, who would have
correctly read William's son's name as Shipley on that 1861 census page?
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
Heh! Right. Especially getting them to write "Kent" as his birthplace in
1871, 1881, and 1891, rather than the true "Ireland".
