Notes:
1. Elizabeth's birthplace is elsewhere given as Nichol Forest (1851 Census), Kirklinton (1861 and 1881 Census) and Stapleton (1891 Census)
2. John and Elizabeth's second son John, about 26 in 1871, was not with parents on Census Day (2 April)
3. Margret is unlikely to be John and Elizabeth's daughter. A Margret, living with Elizabeth at 1881 Census, was specified as granddaughter and is likely to be the illegitimate child of P1509 Jane LAIDMAN, daughter of John and Elizabeth LAIDMAN.

Note: The ‘Civil Parish’ is recorded here as ‘Middlesceugh and Braithwaite’. This confirms what I had suspected that the LDS 1881 Census entry for ‘Census Place’ as ‘Middlesbrough W Braithwaite’ was a transcription error.
