      Unable to locate "Samuel SCOURSE" in the 1881 census or beyond.

      The 1871 census has William (a widower) living with "Charlotte PORTER" on Gas Lane... nearby are living Timothy CULLINANE and wife Eliza!

      The 1861 census has a "William SCOURSE, bc1845, Grandson, labourer in brick yard" living with Samuel SCOURSE. Since Samuel's son John is living there, but is listed as unmarried and idiotic. Perhaps this William is the son of William (bc1823). The 1871 census (RG10 piece 2509 folio 8 page 7) has a "William SCOURSE; bc1850, St Phillips, Bristol; brickmaker" living with his wife on Sheen Lane. More evidence that he might be son of William (bc1823) who is also living on Sheen Lane at this time. The 1881 census (RG11 piece 2451 folio 79 page 33) this "William SCOURSE; bc1850, Bristol; Brickmaker" at 4 Myrtle Street, Bedminster. With wife Alice, and children William and Elizabeth.Unable to locate "Samuel SCOURSE" in the 1851 census. There is another SCOURSE family in Bristol at this time "Caleb SCOURSE, bc1801" is a brickmaker. No sign of Samuel and his family however. (Interestingly Caleb SCOURSE is listed as the landlord in 1845 of the "Golden Heart" public house that used to stand at the corner of St Philip's Bridge and Tower Hill. Removed early 1900s. http://www.bristolinformation.co.uk/srch/srchit.asp?gdoc=pl&first=600&howmany=200&data=&field=&match=and&dir=Next+200&mde=list&category=all )
      In the 1871 census there is also another SCOURSE family (Caleb SCOURSE family are also listed again), "Elizabeth SCOURSE; bc1795, Redcliff; Widow" with her daughter "Mary SCOURSE; bc1825, St Paul's, Bristol" both living as inmates at The Colstone Alms House, St Michaels Hill, St Michael, Bristol.
