Marriage of Arthur Croucher and Louisa Edgell in FreeBMD in January-March 1840 in Christ Church (8 227).

I cannot find him in the 1841 census, but there is an entry for Louisa Croucher aged 21 (his wife?), living with Emma Edgell (her sister?) and Arthur Croucher aged 1 (his son?) in Christchurch, Hampshire.

In the 1851 census as Auther (sic - on the original) Croucher aged 30, born in Christchurch, a labourer and living with his wife (Louisa), three sons (Alfred, Henry and Nanie), daughter (Katherine), neice (friend in the index) (Ann Nitton aged 24, born in Wales, married and a needlewoman) and her two daughters (Elizabeth and Mary both aged 6 and born in Portsmouth) at Hydepark Corner, Landport, Portsea.

In the 1861 census as Arthur Croucher aged 40, born in Portsea, a baker, and living with his wife (Eliza - sic on the original), son (Arthur H), two daughters (Catherine J and Ellen) at 6 Gloucester Street, Landport, Portsea, Hampshire (note the whole family is given as born in Portsea). This address was shared with another family. Authur Henry is given as 9 but there is no record of his birth around 1852 and I assume his age is a mistake and should have been 19.

I cannot find any later information but Arthur Henry Croucher also used the surname Edgell when he married in 1884.
