    Notes 
    • This marriage does not appear to have been a particularly happy one. In the 1901 census return, John is not living with Hannah. In his Will he left her just 1s with all his effects passing to his surviving children and grandchildren.

      I can find no sign of where Hannah was living in 1901.
