The place of birth for S. A. Reeves is not easily read; the first three characters are clearly "Haw" and the final three "ige" with perhaps a "b" or "br" between. Allowing for regional accents, poor spelling & possible transcription issues from schedule to enumeration book, the most likely place is Hawkeridge, in the Parish of Heywood in the west of the county of Wiltshire. Prior to 1849, Heywood was a chapelry in the ancient Parish of Westbury.

It is highly probable this visitor is Sarah Ann REEVES, who appears on the 1881 census giving her place of birth as Hawkeridge and in 1871 as Westbury and who does not appear in the expect family context in 1851.
