My gggparents settled in Manchester (UK) in the early 1860s from Lithuania. In the 1871 and 1881 censuses place of birth was registered simply as Russia/Poland. The image shows the entry from the 1891 census. The first line is for my gggfather and the second for my gggmother. Can anyone interpret what is written. It might be the only clue to where they came from in Lithuania.
Thank you.

The first line looks to me as Nimest which could be the Lithuanian town Naumestis=Neishtot=Tavrig=Taurage(today). Here is a link

The second line looks like Renbrick, but no town with similar name comes to my mind.
3/7/2014 7:06 AM Hello. I've stumbled across your post when researching Renbrick myself. My Gt, Gt Grandparents (Fineberg) moved to Manchester in the 1800s. Jane coming from Renbrick. I wonder if there is a link? Elias Fineberg c. 1831 and Jane Unknown c. 1836. Children: Amelia, Morris, Rose & Rebecca.
