William Crimlis or William Knowles


William is known via the 1861 UK Census which has been erroneously indexed.
His wife and children have all been indexed with his erroneous surname, viz:

1861: UK Census: 1
William was recorded living in Barking, Essex, with his wife and six children. See Barking 1861 for details.

1) Family Search:
England and Wales Census, 1861 - index
"England and Wales Census, 1861," index, FamilySearch ( : accessed 09 May 2013), William Crimlis, 1861.
Notes: "Crimlis" is incorrect, it should be "Knowles".2

2) A single transcription error has been made, and William Crimlis should be recorded as William Knowles, see following image extracted from the Census sheet.
