Notes

1    There is only one birth registered of a Tabitha Swind* but, in addition to the marriage in #b below there is a marriage registered for a Tabitha Swindale in the third quarter of 1905 in the Sculcoates district (9d 369) (to Frederick Bristow or Samuel Marr). There are a number of deaths 1905 - 1916 for a Frederick Bristow but no good matches. Was Tabitha's marriage to John Bottomley bigamous?

2    Tabitha Bottomley was registered as an elector in Newcastle until 1945 and then in London in 1947, 1948 and 1964
