  • Notes 
    • So far I have been unable to find William John in the 1861 census. He was seemingly still alive in 1856 when his son, Frederick, married. The only death I can find that tallies is one in 1863, Newington. Initially I thought that William John married Sarah Jane Rouse Maggs in 1847, after his wife, Sophia, died. Since then I found the family in 1851 so that can be discounted. I have yet to prove that his parents were William Norris and Rebecca Judge but at least I have found her first marriage to Francis Drake - no, not THE Francis Drake!

      From the 1841 England Census for Lambeth, Surrey (HO107 Piece 1052 Book 6 Folio 26 Page 10) William, 33, Messenger Privy Seal, was with his wife Sophia, 30, at Victoria Place, Lambeth, Surrey, England. With them were their children George, 11, Sophia, 9, Sarah, 7, and Frederick, 5. None of the family was recorded as having been born in Surrey.

      From the 1851 England Census for Newington, Surrey (HO107 Piece 1567 Folio 453 Page 23) William J., widower, 49, Messenger to the Privy Seal and from Greenwich, Kent, was at 2 Elizabeth Street, West Side, Newington, Surrey. With him were his daughters Sophia E., 19, born London, Middlesex, Sarah A., 17, born London, Middlesex, and Anna M., 9, born Camberwell, Surrey.
