    Notes 
    • Also living with family in 1841:
      Harriet Howes, age 25 born outside Middx
      There are also two people called Miller living at the same address, apparently. Susannah 30 and Frances, 2 - NOTE FOR FUTURE: it may or may not be

      Also living with family in 1851:
      Harriet Howes, niece, 34, born in Norwich
      Sarah Howes, niece, 19, born in Norwich

      London Gazette of August 1860 says he has already been declared bankrupt. On Oct 26, 1860, the London Gazette says that he was given a "certificate of first class" (which I take to mean that he was fully discharged) unless appeal is launched. From several issues of the London Gazette we learn that on August 9 1861, a second dividend was paid, thus totalling 19s4d per pound owed, ie, almost complete.

      Note: the copy of the parish register available on Ancestry.com appears to be A COPY, handwritten some time after the event. See the copy of the marriage certificate above that was retained by the family of James and Mary. Not only does it have the correct names but it has the first names of the witnesses, which are not available from the copy retained and photographed by Ancestry. Hmmmm!
