Research Notes

  • Research note 01: May have lived in USA. There is a Robert CHUGG of the correct age who sailed from New York to Liverpool in 1915, on the Orduna. He was 54, and was not accompanied by a spouse. He was a permanent resident of USA..5
  • Research note 02: Some researchers believe he is the illegitimate son of William's younger sister, but he is NOT named as such when he became the administrator of Sarah's Will. In 1881, when he was 1 month old, he was with William and Ann, named as a son, so for the moment I am leaving him as is.
