    Notes 
    • After the death of their firstborn (William), William and Maria left London and moved down to Paignton in Devonshire where William had taken work at a boot factory. Their daughter, Mary, was born there in 1916. Some time later, the family moved to Exmouth, Devon, where Mary was to receive the bulk of her education. The family moved again, to Uffculme, Devon, before settling in Cullompton.
