John Edwin Riddick, 18611900 (age 39 years)

Name
John Edwin Riddick
Occupation

(John E Riddick married Rosa Matilda Underwood, a daughter of George William Underwood and Matilda Curtis)

Occupation

It is not 100% certain that the 'Riddick' in the above census is John Edwin Riddick but it probably is given the fact that the two previous census' give his place of birth as 'West Knoyle' and given the similarity between the occupations given in the two previous census' of 'Stable Helper' (1881 census) and Groom/Helper (1891 census). The first name is unreadable but appears to be similar to 'Bullwell' which is perhaps a nickname.

It is not 100% certain that the Riddick in the following 1891 census is John Edwin Riddick but it probably is given the fact that the two previous census' give his place of birth as 'West Knoyle' and given the similarity between the occupations given in the two previous census' of 'Stable Helper' (1881 census) and Groom/Helper (1891 census). The first name is unreadable but appears to be similar to 'Bullwell' which is perhaps a nickname. He states he is married but 1891 is the year before he got married.
