    Notes 
    • 1881 also with brother Edward

      On her marriage register, daughter Florence says William is deceased.
    • Note that Gillray Square in Chelsea where he lived in 1901 and 1911 is just around the corner from Milman Street where he lived at marriage to Amy and yet in the interim he had moved away to Reading

      At one point we thought that the William Henry post 1891 was might have been the William Henry Howse who was born in Marylebone in Q4 1856 - what led us to this conclusion was the consitency in his stated age before and after 1891. HOWEVER, upon seeing his marriage register entry to Amy Wood we are almost certain that this is the same man as the other William Henry Howes also son of Joseph Thomas Howes, the upholsterer. This one appears in 1891 and the other disappears in 1889.

      It's too co-incidental to ignore. Must be the same man. We wonder what happened for him to have left his first family. Certainly, daughter Florence says he died by the time she married in 1903, but there are no deaths for a William Henry Howes of the right age in the right time period. So it appears that there was some kind of family break up after the death of Edward. His parents must have known for a while he would die since they had him baptized just a few days or weeks prior to his death.

      Note too that Wiliam's first daughter by his second wife was his mother's relatively unusual name
