John Buckle snr -1841 to 1851+

John Buckle snr was born in 1791 in Norwich.

In 1841 he was given as a millwright aged 50 living in Rose Lane, St. Peter Per Mountergate with his wife Mary, 52, sons John, 25, a millwright, William, 20, and Henry, 12, and daughters Martha, 23 and Mary, 3 months.

In 1851 he was given as a millwright living in Rose Lane, St. Peter Permountergate with his wife Mary, 60.

John Buckle snr was born 1791 Norwich. He must have moved around Norfolk doing his job because some of his sons were born in different places. John_Henry_Buckle_jnr was born in Yarmouth 1816 and his brother William Edward born 1821 Bungay, Suffolk was also a millwright. Sometimes it just puts engineer on the census returns. Their brother Henry born 1829 Norwich was also a millwright. Most of the family moved to Essex in later life. I don't know if the occupation goes back further as occupations were not mentioned before 1841 census.
