Thomas Worgan born 1813 Five Acres (General)

I have been trying to work out the approximate date my ancestor Thomas Worgan left the FoD and where he went. He was born in 1813, and as you can see from his brother William's baptism, the family lived at Five Acres near Coleford.

In the 1841 census, Thomas's parents are still living in the same place, as is William, but Thomas has gone. Thomas reappears in Wednesfield, Staffordshire in 1852 when he marries Mary Ann Haspy.

In short, I'm missing Thomas from the 1841 and 1851 censuses. I assume he moved to the Stoke-on-Trent area to get better paid work, but it would be nice to have some proof of this.

Cheers - Nick
