1841 Census

James KEATES died in Stinsford, Dorset about December 18345. in 1841, Rachael TALBOT (KEATES) was living at Higher Bockhampton, Stinsford, Dorset6. The 1841 census doesn’t give relationships between individuals, but the baptism records for Stinsford between 1801-1823 confirms that Jane, Ann, Charlotte, John and Charles are the children of James KEATES and Rachael TALBOT. Their other children (not present at this census) were Sarah, George, James, and Rachael.

The children (Caroline, Mary Ann and James) on the census might be Rachael’s grandchildren, but I have not completed the research to confirm this.

Also, the census was not clear so there may have been an occupation listed for individuals but the whole column was unreadable.
