Note

1861 Census - Coast Guard at Littlehampton Coast Guard Building (RG9 / 0615 202/3) Also present on census night was John Paige, listed as lodger, a Custom House Officer from Selsey, age 26. It is possible he is related to Catherine through her mother.

1871 Census - Not yet found - not at Littlehampton or Shoreham areas.

1881 Census - Coastguard Officer at Lepe, Exbury, New Forest. piece 1203 / folio 58 / page 1.

1891 Census - Coast Guard Pensioner at 86 Sackville Road (west side), Hove. (RG12 / 0820 p22 / 15) Birthplace given as Devon, Exmouth. Since there is about 20 miles between the two places this will need checking at some point. Also resident on census night were his wife, Catherine, unmarried daughters Minnie and Carrie, and married daughter Jessie with her son William, aged 6.

He was still living at this address in 1895 (Kelly's Directory of Brighton, 1895)
