I can see David's birth and baptism (26th Dec. 1858) in St. Nicholas Parish in Liverpool.
1881 census : There is a David Griffiths, aged 23, born in Liverpool, lodging at 83 Waterloo St., Liverpool, occupation tailor.
1891 census : The same David, aged 32, born in Liverpool, married to Mary J. Griffiths, living in Crumpsall St. Thomas parish, Manchester, occ. tailor.
Could David have changed his job?

Just found your David Louis Griffith and a couple of other David Griffiths born about 1858. Hope I'm not confusing you.

Thanks for your reply. We have already seen the entry in the 1881 and 1891 Censuses for David Griffiths occ. tailor. David Louis Griffiths (who we think might be a relation) was in the 1891 UK Census, occ. ship rigger. I should have added to our journal that both David's brother Richard, father Morris , and grandfather Morris were all seamen and the father was also a ship rigger. Morris Griffith's son, David was named David Lewis Griffiths after his maternal grandfather who was Lewis Hughes. Lewis Hughes and his wife Eleanor (nee Hughes)lived in Caernarvonshire.
