Census 1851William Snelson Id #887 (Principal) was at home on Census night 31 March 1851 at Belgrave Place, Chester; The head of the household, presumably Margaret's husband John Snelson (#4) seems to have been absent on this night.

I am not sure whether he was a moulder and ironfounder or a joiner. Perhaps he was both. He seems to have "disappeared", but Margaret is never described as a "widow".

I believe him to be the same John Snelson who turns up in Reading in 1851, 1861, 1971.
