Alphonso Turner was listed as being a pauper in the St. George in the East workhouse, birthplace given as Wapping Middlesex about 1836.This is from the 1851 census. I am looking for anything from the 1841 and 61 census and any siblings or ancestors. Thanks

Found this marriage for a Alphonso Turner year 1863 district West Ham a Mary Ludlow is listed and on the 1881 his wife is called mary.
Have found him on some of the census's but not on the 1841. The 1861 as transcribed by Ancestry has a Aharon Turner with wife Mary his name on the census image could be Alphonso/Alfonso place of birth St. Pancras. If you want the details let me know.

The only 1st name on the 1841 that came up with this spelling was Alponzo Moofit? born abt 1835 living in the civil parish of Chelsea, county Middlesex.

Hi Julie, Thanks for reply. In the 1851 census also in the workhouse with Alphonso there is an Ann Turner born about 1813. Could this be his Mother?

On the LDS site (see link below) a member of the LDS has submitted an ancestral file for Alphonso Turner. They have put their name and address. Caution where info has been submitted always look at the original source.
ps I dont know where I got Mary from should have been Ann.
