Individual Events and Attributes

Birth c. 1818 Ireland2
Census 2 Apr 1871 12 Aldby Street, Cleator Moor, Cumberland2
Occupation 2 Apr 1871 iron ore miner2
Death btw 3 Apr 1871 and 1 Dec 18711,2
We know John died before 1881 as Susan was recorded as a widow in the 1881 census. According to Margaret's marriage certificate, John had died before 1 Dec 1871. So the assumption is that he died between 3 April and 1 December 1871. But we have not been able to trace an entry in the death index that would correlate. It is possible that there was an error on Margeret's marriage certificate and John died later in the decade.


Spouse Susan (c. 1818-1891)
Children Margaret BURNS (c. 1845-1910)
Susan BURNS (c. 1850- )

Note on Marriage to Susan

The assumption is that the family left Ireland and moved to England sometime between 1861 and April 1871.
