I'm looking for this fellow. More precisely, I'm looking for his son, also named Joseph. Does anyone have these people in their tree?
At the time of the 1871 census, the elder Joseph was living at 10 Bainbridge Street, Toxteth Park, Liverpool:
Joseph Drabble, Head, Married, 57, Stone Mason, Born Chester
Cathrine Drabble, Wife, Married, 55, Born Manchester
Alice Drabble, Dau, Unmarried, 20, Born Liverpool
Mary Drabble, Dau, Unmarried, 19, Born Liverpool
William Drabble, Son, Unmarried, 19, Labourer,Born Liverpool
George Hooley, S-I-L, Married, 23, Labourer, Born Liverpool
Cathrine Hooley, Dau, Married, 23, Born Liverpool
No sign of the younger Joseph here and he wasn't in the 1861 census either, though he is there in 1851 aged 13. I believe by 1861 he may already have been in New Zealand, but does anyone know this? And when did the older Joseph go out there to join his son?
