Transcript or Summary

                     Rel      Cond   Age  Occupation             Where Born
John Wentworth       Head     Mar     56  Agricultural Labourer  Britford, Wilts
Elizabeth Wentworth  Wife     Mar     40                         Ireland

Elizabeth Wentworth  Dau               2                         Hursley, Hants
William Reeves       Son              10  Agricultural Labourer  Ireland
Ellen Wentworth      Dau      Unm      5  Scholar                Hursley, Hants
Henry Beavis         Lodger   Unm     19  Agricultural Labourer  Hursley, Hants


The sequence of these individuals is curious. Ellen's age is indistinct and might be read as 15 rather than 5, which would explain why she her martial status is shown as "U" for unmarried. However, FreeBMD has a birth registration for an Ellen Wentworth in 1q1847 in Winchester Reg. Dist. which might be this individual and the Hampshire Genealogical Society's Index of Baptisms does not have an Ellen Wentworth in 1835 +/-3 years. John & Elizabeth were married in 1843, so it is highly probable that William is strictly John's step son.
