    Notes 
    • Copy marriage cert in Society of Genealogists from papers of I R Harrison
      "George Free" on son's marriage certificate could well be a mis-read for George John.
      Named George William at Mary Maria Howes's baptism but her subsequent marriage showed her father's name as George John

      From hand-written research notes, courtesy of Vivien Moore, explaining the children's sojourn at the Bermondsey workhouse:
      Father, George John Miller Howes, was involved in an accident (horse & cart era) and was injured, breaking his hip, femur and tibia. He was treated without success at Guy's Hospital. With no income, George's children were taken into care as attested by the above statements (children going to Catholic School in Orpington). He was not able to work again and was permanently a cripple. His address was known to be Gedling Street, Bermondsey. He died at 10 Rothesay Street.
