Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: There are 2 marriages between the 1871 and 1881 census in Lowestoft. One in Dec qtr 1872 between Alice AYERS and John CAPPS, and another in Dec qtr 1877 between Alice Maria AYERS and John Woods CAPPS. Most likely option is the latter as they did not have any children with thier mother (she is alone but noted as married so John is still alive). We know that it is this Alice is the one in the 1881 census as her sister was living with her at the time. However there is only ONE Alice CAPPS in the 1881 census..
