  • Notes 
    • Henry, born circa 1813 at Ospringe, first appears on the 1851 census with his wife, Elizabeth and one son, Henry, Jr., born 1850. Henry was working as a baker and the family lived on Fountain Yard in Faversham.

      By 1861 Henry had died or otherwise abandoned the family. His wife and children had fallen on very difficult times and were described as paupers living in the union workhouse. As with his brother, Matthew, Henry appears to have roamed the land looking for work as witnessed by the diverse locations of birth places of his children: Eleanor in 1851 at Hythe; Gary in 1852 at Preston; Mary Ann, 1853 at Hastings, Sussex.

      The 1871 census saw little change in the family's circumstances: Elizabeth and the other two of Henry's daughters were still living at the workhouse. Elizabeth and Mary Ann, however, were both working as domestic servants, no doubt at the behest of the Union guardians. Henry's wife was also living at the workhouse but working as a dressmaker.

      As of 1881 daughter, Elizabeth, still unmarried, was visiting with her aunts, Elizabeth Berry and Maria Chambers. Henry's wife and daughter, Mary Ann, could be found on the census.
