1    Information from Anne Roberts

2    There is also a Mary Henderson, daughter of Joseph Henderson and Phylllis Burdis, born on the 22nd of November 22nd 1810, baptised on the 29th of December 1810 in Newburn (Information from Gladys Rowley). Francis and Mary's marriage is witnessed by Phyllis Henderson - which supports this Mary. However Mary daughter of Phyllis would only have been 35 at the time of her death whereas Mary daughter of Jane would have been 37 and is definitely a 'local girl'. However, Joseph who married Phyllis was a native of 'Alston' and could have returned to the Nenthead Area.

4    Information from Norman Swindle originally mis-identified the Mary Swindle who died in 1850 with Mary née Henderson. However the death certificates identify the Mary who died in 1846 as the wife of Francis and the Mary who died in 1850 as the wife of Thomas.
