    Notes 
    • Henry Western Langabeer married Elizabeth Mogford on 25 April 1872. Everything seemed fine for the first few years of their marriage and they went on to have five children. Some time around the middle of 1875, Henry met Elizabeth Beer. Not only did Henry have an affair with Elizabeth but at one point, both Elizabeth's were pregnant with Henry's children!

      Only the people involved can put an exact timescale on the events surrounding Henry's infidelity but suffice it to say that by 1881, Elizabeth (Mogford) and her children were living with her sister Jane and brother-in-law Richard Staddon, in High Bolham, near Oakford, Devon. Meanwhile, Henry and Elizabeth (Beer) set off for a new life in Canada with their illigitimate children, Annie and Albert. On arrival in Canada, Elizabeth Beer continued to live the life of Henry's wife, Elizabeth Mogford and even assumed her birthdate and no doubt, other personal details.

      Henry and Elizabeth settled in Hastings County, Ontario and there they had a further 7 children, totally 9 in all! Birth records in Canada clearly indicate the mother's maiden name as "Beer" and so the facade continued until Elizabeth died on 11 February 1933.

      Back in England, the true wife of Henry, Elizabeth Mogford, moved to the town of Stafford, in the county of Staffordshire and started a new life as a "widow". She lived and worked as an officer at the Stafford Union Workhouse where she was a nurse until she died on 19 March 1919.
