7 Albert Leathan was father of 12 children with Hilda Jane Bennetts - but NOT Ormond Frederick Bennetts Leathan, Albert Victor (I0410)
 
8 Apparently William Jolliffe fathered all Louisa's children but the couple weren't married until 22/4/1894.
The 1911 census shows the couple had been married for 17 years which verifies the 1894 wedding date.
Some records show a marriage date of 31/10/1886! but not confirmed.

Alfred George Wright's death uncertain. Possibly 1968.

In 1891 Louisa and three of her children were inmates at the Union Workhouse in Brading

Gertrude 
Wright, Louisa Ann (I0192)
 
9 As at 5th August, 2021
Maria's death appears to be early January, 1892 and burial 14-1-1892
which suggests Henry's marriage to Charlotte was bigamous.
His children's names were also changed (illegally ?) at that time to Henry John and Lucy Davis from Henry John and Maria Moushall (their birth names).
