1    Information from family tree supplied by Anne Roberts / Jim Swindale. It is notable that this is before the marriage.

2    In view of the large gap between Harriet and Margaret, it is possible that Margaret is a grand-daughter rather than the daughter listed in the 1891 census.

3    Elizabeth's wedding in 1886 was celebrated at the Wesleyan Chapel, Allendale. There may be baptism records there.

4    Joseph records in 1911 that he was born at Mill House, West Allen
