    Notes 
    • 1841 census: in South Street, Long Melford (indexed and recorded as DOWNIE) (all born in Suffolk), William (52, ag lab), Mary (45), Robert (15, ag lab), John (14, ag lab), George (12, ag lab), David (9) and Susan (10 months).

      William's first wife died in 1844 and he remarried in 1847.

      1851 census (1): in Liston, Essex, William (62, ag lab, born Foxearth, Essex), Sarah (48, straw plaiter, born Melford, Suffolk) and David (20, ag lab, born Melford). Also Sophia ANDREWS (daughter in law, 15, needlewoman, born Melford, Suffolk).
      1851 census (2): Susan, 10, scholar, born Melford, was living as the niece of John CLARK (44, ag lab, born Wherstead(?), Suffolk and his wife Susan (44, born Chedborough(?), Suffolk).

      William died in 1857.

      1861 census: in Liston, Essex, Sarah DOWNEY (head, widow, 60, formerly char woman, born Melford), Sophia HEMPSTEAD (daughter, lodger, married, 21, cocoa mat weavers wife, born Melford), Isabella E HEMPSTEAD (granddaughter, 2, born Lyston, Essex) and Sarah A HEMPSTEAD (granddaughter, 7 months, born Lyston, Essex).

      I searched all of Liston and Foxearth for 1871 but didn't find Sarah. The death of a Sarah Downey was registered at Sudbury in Q4 1875 but her age is shown in the index as 78.
