Finsley / Finsel Family Census Records

Below, you will find Finsel / Finsley-related census records which I have gathered over the years.
I have indicated relationships (as I believe them to be) in red and have added various comments along the way.
New records will be added as I discover them, so check back regularly!

Family surname spelling variations found in various records include: Finzlam, Finsly, Finsely, Finsal, Fingal

As with any transcription process, errors can exist. I urge you to confirm all data!
This collection of data has taken me MANY manhours of research and correspondence...at considerable expense.
You may LINK to any of my webpages, but please do not reprint any without my express written permission.
Thank you for respecting the work of others.

A very special "thank you" goes out to all the folks who helped me piece together these Finsley records over the years...
you each contributed a little piece of the puzzle, allowing me to form a clearer picture of my ancestors!

I would be absolutely delighted to exchange info with anyone researching these individuals or their relatives!
Feel free to send me (Lorrie Verboort) an email!

[COMMENTS: The census taker tried to indicate the children's surnames by using initials: F = Finsley, B = Brown. This was necessary, due to the fact that Myrtle had been married twice at this point...first to Robert Lee Brown (2 children: Virgil Glen and Hazel), then to Guy Earl Finsley (3 children: Elizabeth Jane, Frederick Henry, and Margaret Ruth). It's interesting to see that Myrtle was a "servant", according to the 1930 census taker...she would become George Wise's wife in 1938.].
