    Notes 
    • 1841 census: in High Street, Elham, Kent, (all born in Kent) Charles UDEN (65, seedsman), Elizabeth UDEN (55), Richard BIRCH (7) and Ann BIRCH (5).
      It's possible that Richard and Ann were counted twice; the following appeared in Hawkinge Lane, Folkestone (all BIRCH, all born in Kent) Robert (30, ag lab), Mary (30), Richard (8) and Ann (6).

      1851 census (1): Richard (18, born Elham) was a house servant at Grove House, Dover Road, Folkestone, home of Ann CLARK (widow, 56).
      1851 census (2): the following might refer to Richard's father and sister: in Gods Providence, Folkestone (both BIRCH, born Folkestone), Robert (head, married*, 42, agricultural labourer) and Ann (daughter, 16).
      * I think Robert's wife Mary probably died in 1847 so Robert would have been a widower in 1851.

      1861 census: in Belle Vue Fields, Folkestone (lodgers with Walter & Mary WOOLGAR and their 2 children), Richard BIRCH (27, gardener, born Elham) and Maria (Richard's wife, 32, born Tiverton, Devon).

(sister, unmarried, 36, dressmaker, born Uphill, Kent).

      1881 census: at 40 Denmark Street, Folkestone (all BIRCH) Richard (head, widower, 47, gardener, born Elham, Kent), Richard (son, 19, carpenter, unemployed, born Folkestone), Alfred (son, 17, grocer, born Folkestone), Maria (daughter, 15, scholar, born Folkestone), Mary (daughter, 10, scholar, born Folkestone) and Ann (sister, unmarried, 36, houskeeper, born Folkestone, Kent).

      1891 census: not found.

      1901 census: at 36 Marshall Street, Folkestone (all BIRCH) Richard (head, widower, 67, gardener, born Elham, Kent), Alfred (son, single, 38, grocers assistant, born Folkestone), Maria (daughter, single, 35, born Folkestone), Mary (daughter, single, 30, assistant, toy & fancy shop, born Folkestone) and Ann (sister, single, 66, houskeeper, born Folkestone, Kent).

      1911 census: at 68 Pavilion Road, Folkestone (8 rooms) (all BIRCH) Richard (head, widower, 77, gardener (retired), born Elham, Kent), Alfred Robert (son, single, 47, grocers assistant, born Folkestone), Maria Ann (daughter, single, 45, born Folkestone) and Mary Elizabeth (daughter, single, 40, assistant (stationary), born Folkestone) and a boarder Wilfred MILSON (34, single, engineer (steamship), born Hampstead, London).
