- The naming of his wife as Sarah in this census record poses a problem. His wife Maria was living at this date (she died in 1879) and it would seem unlikely that the names Sarah and Maria would have been mistaken. It is noted that John left £50 in his will to his housekeeper, Sarah Gilham, and it would be possible that she was the Sarah of the census, although there is no other evidence to support this.
