Bellamy or Bellarmy

Earlier this year I obtained the England and Wales Census 1901 return for the household of Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased. This is an outline of my transcription:

FHJ Ref: 025
Census: England and Wales Census 1901

Studying in more detail this information, I realise my previous research is probably flawed. To read my earlier post please click here. I have a copy of the marriage certificate for George Albert BELLAMY 1880-Deceased and Emily BELLAMY (née Emily ELLIS 1883-1978) so I can validate George Albert BELLAMY 1880-Deceased's father being recorded as Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and his mother as Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased).

Searching the England and Wales Census 1881 I realise the problem is quite simple; BELLAMY is now BELLARMY.

FHJ Ref: 026
Census: England and Wales Census 1881

Note: Transcription error: for Bellarmy read Bellamy

Searches on FreeCEN returns zero results.

I will add a note to my earlier posts expressing my doubts as to the accuracy of the data.
