  • Notes 
    • Sarah was a country lass who grew up in a small village in Wiltshire. She got married aged 22 to Abel, a servant, and they had 2 children in Wiltshire before moving to Hampshire where Abel worked as a groom, and then on to London where Abel ran a fleet of cabs.
      the only job she is listed as having is 'washerwoman' as well as grooms wife in 1861.
      The fact that their children became a house maid, school mistress and a ships captain shows that they are a good example of a couple who changed their fortunes from humble rural beginnings.
