 Notes & Citations

  1. His wife was described in the 1851 census as a widow.
  2. A record of John's first marriage has not been found. Both John and Emmeline were described as widowed at the date of their marriage. It is noted that John's son Samuel was born some four years before John's marriage to Emmerline and it is tempting to assign Samuel to the first marriage. However, Samuel's baptism record would appear to state that he was Emmeline's son.
