An extensive search of the 1871 Census for England and Wales, was made (for many variants of spelling). This is the only entry 
that comes anywhere close to a match. The age is right but the place of birth is not. Also, I have no record of Edward having 
a sister Margaret in 1847 (born in Prestwich at a time when the family is known to have been living in Little Bolton). 
A search of the GRO Birth Indexes has shown that another Edward Howson was born in Manchester during  the Sep Qtr of 1850 -
 - it seems likely that this one is he. So where is 'my' Edward Howson (H0402)
