  • Notes 
    • Grandpa (always called George). I have assumed the 1901 census household indicated is correct because:
      - Birth place and date are correct.
      - Sarah is given as married but same name as parents
      - George would be a VERY late child for Sarah's mother.
      - I remember some family talk of a Kent connection.
      - At her later marriage to Thomas Muse Sarah gives her father's name as Noah (though she crossed out Hughes and put Norris.
