BIOGRAPHY: Listed in 1881 census aged 22.

Sarah Arkell from the UK noted, "Emma DUNK born 1859 Pembury i believe her married name is DODSWELL . On the 1901 Census it gives her being born 1859 at Pembury . It gives her the only person by the name of Emma age 42 that was born in Pembury."


John BROOKS

BIOGRAPHY: Depite being aged 82 at the time of the 1881 census, John's occupation was listed as "Builder Employing 3 Men". Obviously his age (82) does not add up with his Christening date but, at 82 or 85, you might find it difficult to remember how old you are, too.


John GATES

A long shot, but may have been married to Elizabeth STOVOLD 26 Feb 1719 at Farnham, Surrey, England. Is Farnham close by??? All of John's children were born back in Egham, so if Farnham is not close by it is unlikely that he married Elizabeth STOVOLD. No further info on Elizabeth.
