  • Notes 
    • From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 3734 Folio 105 Page 30) Frank, 9, Scholar, was with his parents John, 31, Woollen Cloth Finisher, and Hannah, 28, at 2 Moorlands Cottage, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England. With him was his brother Ernest, 5, Scholar. Everyone was reportedly born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire.

      From the 1901 Census (RG13 Piece 4267 Folio 95 Page 43) Frank, 19, Blanket Fuller, was with his parents John, 41, Cloth Finisher, and Hannah, 39, at 46 Whitley Street, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England. With him were his siblings Ernest, 15, Piecer in Woollen Mill, Martha, 10, Dick, 7, and Percy, 1. Everyone was reportedly born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire.

      A "Fuller" was one who "fulls" cloth; the process of cleaning (removing the natural oils and lanolin) wool in preparation for spinning and weaving, using fuller's earth. In medieval times, this involved treading the cloth in stale urine for some 8 hours.
