I found this in the vestry minutes for Cheringotn at the meeting of July 21, 1828: "Ordered that Simon Pratt and Joseph Day be respectively told that they must bring a shilling a week to the overseer (William Timms) for their rents and in default of doing so, that they will be removed from their houses and put in with some other family.”

I take it that they would be living in house owned by the parish but I am not sure of that. In any event, I did not later see an order evicting either of them, so perhaps they paid up

Something is wrong. There should not be a second Edward to this couple. The first one lived until age 33

Why do I have him here at all?

It would appear as if she never married. I say that as in both the 1841 and all following censuses, she was shown as unmarried. In the 1841 census, she was a mantua maker. In the 1851 census, she is in Chipping Norton at 38 New Street. She is noted as unmarried. John Andrews and his family are living with (he is noted as a lodger). She was a dressmaker. Her neice as shown as a milliner. I expect that it is she who was buried on September 15, 1860, when she was shown as being 66 years old.

There is a Mason symbol on his gravestone which is quite large indeed. There is a small stone in the plot which says "DAD." He and his wife and son are buried in Plot 13, Row 9, Section C.

The S. for his middle name comes both from the tombstone and the 1906 Alberta census. In the census, he is recorded as Hughie S. McLeod. The names of the other children come from that too. There is a discordance with the age on the 1906 census and the age on his gravestone. As well, in the 1901 census, he was said to be born on August 6, 1861.

The "exact" birth dates come from the 1901 census.

He is in various Henderson City Directories. He is mainly in real estate.

I had trouble reading her gravestone, so her maiden name may well be wrong. Her birth year on her gravestone is also off with the 1901 census.

There are a William and Elizabeth Cook living at in the 1911 census. This is very close to where the Kennedy family was living later on. Did Hilda and Jack meet in that fashion?
