Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 02: There is a Lydia who married Samuel Woodcock, but the marriage record in St Augustine's shows her father as James so it is not this one. The other Lydia shows as married in the 1851 census but was living alone in Norwich, and Samuel was living as a lodger elsewhere - Ironfounder journeyman.
