      3. Millicent, born in 1895, married in 1919 Harold P. Summers.
      4. Ernest, born in 1899, died in 1913.
        James (born in 1830) married secondly Elizabeth -------, who was born in 1835 and died in 1903. James died in 1919. The descendants of this James, who are listed above, were a branch of the Family which we originally believed to be separate, one of the four branches mentioned in the History on page 208. However, as we have said in the Newsletter, we found that, in fact, it was part of one of the other branches, that which descended from William, youngest son of Joseph of Brailsford, and so from William's son Thomas who married Elizabeth Wair. The finding of the crucial link came about quite fortuitously during research connected with the 1881 Census returns. James was there recorded as living in Derby with his aged widowed mother Elizabeth (née Wair) her birthplace given as Tavistock, Devon (English Census returns state birthplaces), the household also listing James' second wife, Elizabeth, and all his children by his first wife Millicent. James' occupation was given as elastic weaver.
  8. Jane, born in 1833, died in 1838.
