Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: We know from the 1841 census Louisa was with Priscilla PATTERSON (mother) and Priscilla BAXFIELD (daughter) in Yarmouth, and we know that Louisa's parents were said to be Henry BAXFIELD and Priscilla (presumably married) and the younger Priscilla's parents were said to be Mathew PARTRIDGE and Priscilla (presumably BAXFIELD from the name of her daughter). In 1851 the 2 Priscillas were together, with the elder being the widow of a PATTERSON. She had with he a Mary Ann BAXFIELD, listed as a daughter, and her parents were James and Priscilla PATTERSON. There was also a son George James, who was the son of Priscilla and Jonathan (as his birth was after the marriage, both being in 1844, but the christening register does not cover this date, and I have not obtained a birth certificate). This more or less leaves us with the fact that only one Priscilla mothered all the children born between 1828 and 1844, at least. These children's fathers are in most cases unconfirmed..
