I'm looking for William in 1871. His father was Henry Burgess b c1828 and his mother's name was Rebecca. There should also be a Mary Ann and Helen Burgess with them. Thanks.

Harborne, bit of a long shot, but would Henry senior have been known as Thomas?
The only family on the 1871 that I acn see with the other names has the head named Thomas, there is Rebeca - wife, Ellen and Mary Ann duaghters, Henery and William sons, at 8 ?Branster Street - Thomas and Rebeca and the girls were in the button trade, William was a gold chain maker,so does any of this fit with your family?

Hi Sue and Bewdley, thanks very much for your input. This is the correct family, I had them on Ancestry last week but my subscription ran out before I could copy it, I was following so many other things up at the time. Either Henry has been mis-transcribed or he was also known as Thomas, which was also a family name and with so many other Henry's it wouldn't have been surprising if he'd been called something else! Your help is much appreciated.
