Charles is shown as married, but his wife is not present in this household. It is probable this is the Charles Reeves who married Rebecca PHILLIPS at the Registry Office at Newport, IoW in 1q1851. A married Rebecca Reeves is found with her mother and step-father, but not her husband at Arreton, IoW on the 1851 census. The birth of Rebecca Ann Reeves, whose mother's maiden name was Philips (sic) was registered in the Newport (IoW) Sub-District during 2q8151, so it is probable Rebecca returned to her mother's home for her confinement.
