    Notes 
    • William after 1871 is difficult to track. It's unclear if and when he married. I haven't found him in the 1881 census but the following entries probably refer to him. He appears to be married to Ellen and, like brother John Butcher ELMER, to have moved to Mitcham, Surrey.

      May 2016: email from Scott Hamilton:
      "I am a great great grandson of William Elmer and Ellen Hickey. I can confirm you have found the correct census entries for William Elmer, son of John Elmer and Harriett Marshall.

      I also have a TNG website, you can find William's profile here: «u»http://www.hamilton-family.co.uk/getperson.php?personID=P1636&tree=tree1«/u»

      William's surname was recorded as 'Almer' on his marriage certificate.

      I saw a note on his father's John's page that you couldn't find his mother Harriett in 1911 or her record of her death. In 1911 she can be found living at 18 St Botolph, Colchester (Reference: RG14PN10292 RG78PN543 RD198 SD1 ED8 SN106). She died a year later in Colchester registration district, and her surname was indexed as 'Eliner'."

      [JGM: I've looked at the website referenced above - it contains a lot of information, a little of which I've copied.}

      1891 census: in Merton Lane, Mitcham, indexed and recorded as ELMA, William (26, carman, born 'N.K'), Ellen (wife, 26, field labourer, born 'N.K'), Ellen (daughter (6, born 'N.K') and Elizabeth (3, born 'N.K').

      1901 census: at 33 Greyhound Lane, Mitcham, indexed as ELONA and recorded as ELMA , William (41, carter (contractors), born Colchester, Essex), Ellen (wife, 3_, born Mitcham, Surrey), Ellen (daughter (16, born Mitcham, Surrey), Elizabeth (11, born Mitcham, Surrey), William (9, born Mitcham, Surrey), Annie (7, born Mitcham, Surrey), John (4, born Mitcham, Surrey) and May (1, born Mitcham, Surrey).

      1911 census: at 8 Shore Street, Mitcham (3 rooms) (all ELMER, William (49, horse driver, born Colchester, Essex), Ellen (wife, 47, married 28 years, 11 children, 9 living, 2 dead, born Mitcham, Surrey), William (19, golf caddie, born Mitcham, Surrey), Annie (17, domestic servant, born Mitcham, Surrey), John (14, born Mitcham, Surrey), May (10, born Mitcham, Surrey), Grace (8, born Mitcham, Surrey), Arthur (6, born Mitcham, Surrey) and Harriet (5, born Mitcham, Surrey).

      I haven't tracked all these children further.
