Female age 4, so looks like wee Robert didn't make it, or was staying with someone else. The writing is fairly clear, so you wonder what the enumerator thought he heard! It's indexed as "Butler," but looks to me like the 't' comes after the 'l.'

Best wishes,

Alan, I tend to copy the text i have written then submit - then if i have timed out i haven't lost it all.

Greetings Ailsa.

I see you have now edited this post, as yesterday I was tempted to ask was AndrewP aka Merlyn the magician, but decided against it, as late at night I'm not that clear in what I'm typing, though usually type a reply in WORD and then copy and paste.

Happy hunting.
