Census Abbreviation "GW"

Post by rfj1001 » 18 Jun 2019 14:54

The attachment is from the 1851 census of Church Coppenhall, Cheshire.

In the age column for William Nightingale are the initials "GW".

Assuming this isn't an error, can anyone throw any light on what it might mean.

(The 1861 and 1871 censuses show a consistent calculated date of birth for William as 1851.)

Thanks

I think you're right :) My mind was so focused on just letters that I forget to think about numbers :(

Many thanks
