  • Notes 
    • Thomas William Milsted had married and started his family five year prior to the loss of his mother (1863). He and his family lived on Bridge Place in Preston at the time of the 1861 census. Thomas was then working as a fisherman.

      By 1871 Thomas and family had moved over to The Brents. He was still working as a fisherman and had had four more children. Thomas had also taken on the job as the local beer retailer at the Albion in Preston.

      As of 1881 the family had moved again, this time to 5 Manor Place. Thomas was still working as a mariner but had relinquished his stint as beer retailer. Living with them was a woman by the name of Elizabeth Bushnell, referred to as Thomas' aunt. I suspect that, in fact, she was the aunt of his wife. Elizabeth Bushnell was born at Shepherdswell, kent and was a widow.

      Sarah Ann, Thomas's wife, did not life to see any of her grandchildren, she having died during December of 1884. The 1891 census found Thomas living at 1 Mendfield Street with his in-laws, Thomas and Frances Millen. George had married and had two children of his own - Frank Thomas and Dorothy Ruth. In 1891 they were living at 46 St. John's Road and George was working as a railway porter.

      Emily was still at home in 1891 along with her daughter, Lilly, who had been born during 1888. Also, as of 1891 Thomas, III was working as a porter at the workhouse in Herne.
