    Notes 
    • This John SNOW cannot be found satisfactorily in the 1841 census.

      In 1861, John and his wife, Sarah, were each boarding separately, one in Okehampton and the other in Bideford, Devon. Given the distance apart (24 miles) this might indicate they had decided to end the marriage, although both reported being married at the time. The subsequent second marriage of John in 1866, claiming to be a widower, supports the death of Sarah, but to date no death registration between 1861 and 1866. Sarah cannot be found in the 1871 census. Anne Brooks
