    Notes 
    • This Matthew is believed to be Matthew the carpenter found on censuses from 1841 to 1871. There are two reservations about this assumption, firstly that Matthew the carpenter said he was born in Eyke (whereas Stella Herbert gives Boyton as his birthplace) and secondly, the ages given on censuses and in the BMD death index suggest a birth year of 1801 rather than 1802.

      1841 census: in Union Street, St Margarets, Ipswich, Suffolk, Matthew (40, carpenter) and Sarah (40), both born in Suffolk.

      1851 census: Matthew (50, widower, carpenter) was lodging in Hill, Wickham Market, Suffolk with wife-to-be Louisa LING (widow, 41, dressmaker) and her children Louisa (15), William James (12) and Mary Elizabeth (9).

      1861 census: at 7 Marion Terrace, West Ham, London, Matthew (60, joiner), Louisa (52), William J LING (son-in-law [should be stepson], unmarried, 22, clerk to carrier), William LING (son-in-law, married, 26, porter) and Louisa LING (daughter-in-law, 25)

      1871 census (indexed as MINLE by ancestry.com): in Nelson Street, St Luke, London, Matthew (70, carpenter), Louisa (60), William LING (son-in-law [should be stepson], married, 31, railway clerk) and Elizabeth LING ([step] daughter-in-law, 27, born Rainham, Essex).

      1881 census: Matthew died in 1876: his widow Louisa (72, dressmaker) was lodging in Dagenham Road, Hornchurch, Essex with Thomas DAVIS (67, gardener, born Chelsea), his wife Lydia (75, domestic servant, born Hornchurch) and their grandaughter Louisa A LING (4, born Hornchurch).

      1891 census: Louisa not found.
