    Notes 
    • There is uncertainty about Samuel's birth date/age. In the 1851 census, when he lived with his parents, his age was given as 16 impying a birth year of 1834 or 1835. But in the 1861 census his age was shown as 37 implying a birth year of 1823 or 1824.

      Because of this it cannot safely be assumed that the person referred to in these two censuses was the same individual. Neither can it be assumed with certainty that the parents of the Samuel who gave his age as 37 in 1861 were John and Elizabeth Turkington.

      However, it's possible that in 1861 either Samuel lied about his age or the enumerator got it wrong, and that the age should have been shown as 27.

      The 1870 death of a Samuel Turkington is assumed to relate to this Samuel but again there's an age discrepancy - the Samuel who died in 1870 was said to be 33.

      Notwithstanding all these uncertainties, I've assumed that Samuel was the son of John & Elizabeth and that he was born in Liverpool about 1824.

      The 1841 census might help but cannot be found.

      1861 census: at 14 Lower Thurlow Street, Islington, Liverpool (all TURKINGTON, all born Liverpool), Saml. (37, ---- labourer), Jane (35) and Saml. (6 months).

      Samuel appears to have died in Q1 1870 and Jane apparently remarried in the next quarter. For details of 1871 census, see the Notes for Jane's new husband John DOUGLAS.
