8 Annie's burial notice from Find a Grave records her grave site as Annie Nancy Mornane Rankin but the gravestone shows Annie Nancy Rankin. MORNANE, Annie Nancy (I0237)
9 Apparently William Jolliffe fathered all Louisa's children but the couple weren't married until 22/4/1894. However, there is a recorded marriage of William and Louisa dated 31/10/1886!

That marriage is questioned because mother and three children were in the workhouse (without the father) in 1891 and the couple's marriage date was declared in the 1911 Census as 1894!

Alfred George Wright died December, 1880. Possibly the same year of his birth in Carisbrooke
This name also appears in the 1911 Census with Alfred 30 years old.???

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