Thank you Linda.
I had checked previous years of the census but, couldn't locate the family.
Son Frederick is 11 and born in London.
Why aren't they on the 1891 census?

Hi Lew

... I did wonder about that family when I saw them last night .............. spelling is wrong, but the names, ages and occupation are right.

Thank you

Hi Antonia

Just did a quick look at that 1881 Census again. The birthplaces of the chioldren indicate that the family moved to England between 1874 and 1878.

Adolphe Schonberg 1 b. ca 1880. Whitechapel, Middlesex
Charles Schonberg 3 b.ca 1878, Whitechapel
Charlotte Schonberg 44
Fredk. Schonberg 43 Hanover (Bs), Germany, tailor
Fredk. Schonberg 18 b. Hamburg
Helena Schonberg 7 b.ca 1874, Hamburg
Theresa Schonberg 14 b.ca 1867, Hamburg


ie, between the births of Helena and Charles
