Joseph and Mary are described as Shoemakers, whilst Susannah is a Shoe Binder. Joseph is aged 57. The relationship between the Reeves and Francis families is not know, but none of them were born in Hampshire.

At the time of the 1851 census, Joseph and Susanna were living at 12 Chapel Street in the St Mary's area of Southampton. Living with them was their 8 year old nephew Albert Francis. Joseph was 67 years old and claims birth in Westbury, Wilts. His occupation is given as a Master Cord Wainer.
