    Notes 
    • The transcripts of the Folkestone Parish Registers give Jacob's second name as Boxer.

      In 1803 listed as son of Richard of Saffron Row, aged 16.
      No trace of marriage to Mary.

      1841 census: in North Street, Folkestone, Mary (43), Mary (11) and Pleasant (8)

      1851 census: at North Street, Folkestone, Jacob (59, labourer, SE Railway), Mary (54), Mary (20, dressmaker), Pleasant (18), Henry ABBOTT (brother in law, 35, porter, SE & CSRC) and Mary COOK (78, widow, sister, pauper, formerly nurse).

      1861 census: at Boyle Street, St Mary Eanswythe, Folkestone, Jacob (75, porter), Mary (74), Pleasant (26, dressmaker) and Mary COOK (92, widow, mother in law [!, actually sister].

      Note: while I'm sure this is the same couple, there is a big discrepancy in the ages of both Jacob and Mary and of Mary COOK. The 1861 ages are probably nearer the truth.

      Jacob's death was reported in a local newspaper on 24 Jan 1871, giving age as 86, of Harvey Road.

      from Folkestone Parish Register, March 2006. The writing in the Register is microscopic but definitelt says Boxer as the second name. Some sources have Bow, which must be a transcription error.
