    Notes 
    • We assume this is the John who married Ann Short because they named their children Hugh & Joseph (after his brothers - in fact, based on the GRO index, they are probably twins as his brothers were). This could be verified by ordering John's marriage cert to make sure his father's name is Thomas.

      Not in 1871 census. Not at 89 Hinde st (district 21, piece 5077, folio 49 pg 30) - interestingly, George Lawson Carlile is at 87 Hinde St. #89 is listed as "89 & 91", E. Smith & family - probably didn't record 89 properly.

      Not in our will index. Not in 1901 census.
