Dear Margaret & Doug, a bit of help for you.

Sign up as a free member of rootschat, then goto their Yorkshire board, and post an 1881 Census lookup request to find your husband's family. Harold BRAITHWAITE would have been born 1878, so would be aged a 5yr old boy on that census. Then you can check 1891, 1901, 1871, 1861, 1851, 1841 census, and go back further via parish records.

And have a look at this website, your husband's family may already be there.
