There were (at least) three couples named 'Thomas and Sarah Grimwood' in the same general area of Suffolk at the time of the 1841 census.

Thomas Grimwood & Sarah Fitch of Hitcham[1]

This couple were married in 1821 at Stanstead, Suffolk.[2]

Their children were:
Mary Maria 1821
Thomas William 1822/6
Marian 1826
Elizabeth/Betsey 1829/30
Ebenezer 1832
Thomas 1835
Christopher 1839


Thomas Grimwood & Sarah READ (nee Spall) of Dallinghoo[3]

This couple were married in 1821 at Dallinghoo.[4] Sarah's first husband, Walter Read, died in 1819. Her two children by Walter also appear with this couple in the 1841 census (Sarah Ann Read and Elizabeth Read). Sarah died in late 1841.

Their children were:
Ann 1822
William 1825 (likely died as infant but may be earlier baptism)
William 1827
John 1832 (although mother's name given as Mary Read at baptism - this may be a mistranscription of Sarah, as he appears with the family on the 1841 and 1851 censuses)
Mary 1835
Rosina 1836

"The following prizes were awarded by the East Suffolk Agricultural Association, and presented at the meeting held at Saxmundham, on Thursday last:-
Class I.- Labourers in Husbandry, who have brought up to the age of 8 years the greatest number of children, without or with the least parochial relief: two sovereigns each...
Thomas Grimwood, Dallinghoo, 6 children; r. by Mr. Jas. Churchyard, Dallinghoo." The Suffolk Chronicle; or Weekly General Advertiser & County Express, 16 September 1848, p3, c4


Thomas Grimwood and Sarah (unknown) of Ringshall[5]

The following children of this couple were all baptised at the Baptist meeting house in Wattisham:

Sarah 1824
Thomas 1827
John 1829
Daniel 1833
Eliza 1835

There is an 1805 baptism of a Thomas Grimwood at the same baptist meeting house (who may be the Thomas of this couple) - son of Thomas Grimwood & Mary[6] (also possible siblings Mary 1807 and George 1809)
