    • Mary Ann according to the 1871 census index or more to the point what thecensus writer wrote was, Mrs Featherstone has 20 sons, 3 daughters andno twins. If this be true then there is still 9 sons to find. We Thinkthat what she said to the enumerator was I have plenty of sons & threedaughters, But of course she had four daughters.

    • Witnesses to the Marriage between Mary Anne Billings and GeorgeFeatherstone were Henry Welch & Julius Whitehead. George and Mary Annewere married at Morley in Yorkshire (where Alfred was born), and at thetime of his marriage, George was a Miner.
      We think George married Mary Anne Billings between 1841 and 1843 in theKent region and that William his father is left at home with two of hisgrand- children as recorded in the 1841 census. Of course they could beWilliam's own children. George must have travelled about as it seems hedidn't return to Mansfield until either late 1847 or early 1848. By thistime they already had 3 children. George died on the 13th of January1882 at Fishponds aged 68 years, he died from Chronic BronchitisAnasarca, certified by I J Gadsby MD. Mary his Widow was present at hisdeath.
