    • Edith was described as a widow, so obviously Frederick William died prior to the census date. She recorded her address as "13 Cotehele Terrace, Truro", but the enumerator recorded it as "13 Station Road, Truro". The house apparently still stands today (2015), but the address is Station Road, as the enumerator had it. "Cotehele Terrace" seems not to exist.

      Edith stated that she had been married for 23 years, and that she had had 11 children, with 8 of them still living. There must have been a child born and died between censuses that has gone unrecorded here.
