Research Notes

The only William Martin I have found in the 1861 Census is at Hatley Cockayne, Bedfordshire. He is a labourer and a servant, age 22, in the household of William Garriott, a coal dealer. More investigation required.

Cannot find William/Ellen in 1901 census. More investigation required.
