John SHEPPARD Surname spelling on Baptism SHEPHERD
Baptised St Marys Nottingham 16 July 1833

I have been unable to find any further information for father John or later listed as Alfred.

On 23 January 1853 John SHEPHARD married Elizabeth Musson in St. Marys parish church he was living at Burdett Court his father is listed as Alfred Shepherd - deceased labourer.
John signs his name as SHEPHARD Elizabeth makes her mark 'x'
They are both listed as "under age"

John & Elizabeth have two children

born 11 Aug 1854 Burdett Court St Marys, Nottingham
Father John SHEPPHERD lace Maker,
Mother Elizabeth Sheppherd formerly Musson

Jane died 1927 - surname SHEPHERD her sons surname SHEPPARD (that's a whole other story)

2. George SHEPPARD
born 16 July 1857 Burdett Court St Marys, Nottingham
Father John SHEPPARD lace maker
Mother Elizabeth Sheppard formerly Musson

George died 1876

John's sister Mary was baptised 17 Feb 1830 no father listed mother Elizabeth SHEPHERD.

The spelling of the surname changes back and forward.

I can't find any trace of John b1833 on the 1861 Census, Elizabeth is with her parents and her mother in law (Johns mother) at her parents address Mall Mill Lane

Census 1861
Civil parish: St Mary
Ecclesiastical parish: St John

Name Age
George Musson 51
Hannah Musson 51

I have details of the Musson family and for Elizabeth Sheppard nee Musson and most of the information on Jane Sheppard b1854.

Can any one find my John, he is my husbands Great Great Grandfather and we would love to know what happened to him.
