Note on Marriage

Harriett is noted as married in 1891 Census, 5 April, so it is assumed William died after this date

Note on Husband: William CURTIS (1) - shared note

1881 Census: noted as absent William is not in the 1891 Census and is therefore presumed dead at this time.

Note on Husband: William CURTIS (2)

It would appear the name change from Courtice to Curtis occurred at the time of William & Harriett's marriage

Note on Child 2: Clara A CURTIS - shared note

At the age of 15, Clara was head of the household and carring for her sister, 7 years and brother 3 years old.

Note on Child 5: John Henry CURTIS - shared note

1891 Census: As John, 3 years old, was now living with his 15 year old sister as head of the household, and his sister Nelly, it would seem reasonable to assume both mother and father had died prior to this Census
