  • Notes 
    • Neice Kate Memory is living with him in the 1871 census (b. 1854 Nottinghamshire) (possible recording error for her surname as there seems to be no other record of her, she may have been a LEE)

      If you still have access to Ancestry or Find my Past or wish to buy credits with British Newspaper Archives, there are tons of articles regarding this rogue. He was regularly in the courts.

      He named a different father on his marriage to Bridget than what he had named on the marriage to Caroline.
