Note    N352         Index
If I have the right family in the 1851 census for Wallington, he is there with Harriet and three children: William (21?), Charles 10 and Fanny 9. Where was Harriet?

Assuming that I have the right family, in the 1861 census for Wallington, he and his wife Harriet appear along with the son William. Both father and son are farm labourers.

Interestingly enough, in the 1871 census, there is a John Wignell and Harriet Wignell in the same place but with different birth years. In both censuses, John King, house painter is next door.
