  • Notes 
    • Cannot be certain about the death but the age is right and occupation pilot seems a good match to waterman as he styled himself in censuses.
      Probably appears in the 1871 census with a new wife, Elizabeth, and a bunch of other children - though oddly they were not with him in 1861. Were they Elizabeth's but now taking his name?
