There is potential confusion with a second Martha Ann Binns in nearby Rochdale, born 1855[5] and married in the same Q3 1878[6]. She is also referred to in the 1861 census in Whitworth.[7]

1861 census record (June 6th) notes brother John W to be 6 years old, putting birth date as 1855. There are no corresponding birth record for John W Binns in Oldham (between Q3 1854 and Q2 1855). There is a birth record for John William Binns in Oldham in Dec 1857[8]. There are birth records for 3 other John W Binns in all counties with age 6 at the time of the 1861 census.
