  • Notes 
    • Information below about this individual and family kindly supplied by Sue [Email: susanrob@beyond.net.au] who writes (2006):

      "I managed to follow the family through from 1851-1891 Census. Henry's other brother, George who is living with them in 1851, follows through, married to Mary, in 1861 Census through to 1891 Census, and possibly remarried in 1901 Census. If you would like all the Census records, don't hesitate to ask."
