    Notes 
    • Clara E(mma) WESTERN lived in 1871 and 1881 with her parents William and Harriett Western. She was born in Doncaster, Yorkshire.

      February 2013. Research into the George DOWNEY who until now has been listed as one of Charles Frederick and Clara's sons even though he was born about 1889, before they were married, has led me to conclude that Clara was in fact married to a Charles BALDING for a short while. The details are:
      Clara married Charles Henry BALDING in Q1 1888 at Doncaster RD.
      They registered a son George Henry BALDING at Doncaster RD in Q4 1888.
      Charles Henry's death was registered at Thorne RD in Q3 1889.

      There are two 1891 census entries which support the above:
      1. At the Cross Keys Hotel, Crowle, Lincs was Clara E BALDIN (sic), 22, status unclear but could be widow, born "Methesingham" [it's unclear what this was supposed to be].
      2. at 19 Gordon Street, Doncaster, staying with his grandparents William and Harriett WESTERN, was George BALDWIN (sic) (grandson, 2, born Mexbro [Mexborough]).

      As a result of this I've added a first husband for Clara and have moved George DOWNEY who now becomes George Henry BALDING.
