    Notes 
    • The 1901 Census shows children Mabel and John, both b. 12 Nov 1880. It would appear that they are Madeline and John William--whose dates of birth are known from the St. Mary's Cathedral register--and that the Census taker (or his informant) was hallucinating. [Bob H]

  • Notes 
    • It is not 100% certain that this Bibiana SLAUNWHITE is Barbara, wife of Nicholas Edward BROWN, but here is the evidence:
      a. The baptismal record for one of her children gives her name as Barbara SLAUNWHITE
      b. Her marriage record states she is Barbara MARTIN, b. Prospect, d/o John and Mary MARTIN
      c. Her age in the 1881 Census is given as 26, placing her birth abt 1854
      d. Living with Nicholas and Barbara BROWN in the 1901 Census is Hattie DRYSDALE, d/o Ephraim and Sarah Jane DRYSDALE.
      e. Sarah Jane dies in 1898 and it would normally be assumed that Hattie has gone to live with a blood relative; Hattie's grandmother is Mary Eliza SLAUNWHITE, which would make Barbara Hattie's great-aunt
      f. The name Bibiana is occasionally seen for Terence Bay area residents named Barbara, and Mary Eliza SLAUNWHITE has a sister who appears in two separate documents as Bibiana or Bibe A.
      g. The BROWN family, Hattie DRYSDALE and Hattie's parents are all Catholic

      Clearly, Barbara BROWN is the d/o John George and Mary Ann (SLAUNWHITE) SLAUNWHITE aka MARTIN, and the only daughter this could reasonably be is Bibiana. [Bob H]
