      Son John, 3, was a visitor at Hill Farm, Whatfield, Suffolk with Emily Sarah VINCE (20) and William R VINCE (17). They are shown as daughter and son but there is no head of household shown - presumably they were Elizabeth VINCE's children. Also visiting at Hill Farm was William VINCE, 3.

It is assumed that May Elizabeth (whose birth was registered at Ipswich in Q2 1901 (4a/979) was the daughter of William's son John.
