      1881 Census Does not have George Harry present in this family. However, There is a George BAXTER grandson to a William and Catherine BAXTER in Polesworth WAR which is geographically not far away. George Harry's birth place is given as Coton Park & in searching the 1881 Census have found that there is a Coton Park Farm in Rosliston, neighbouring Botony Bay Rosliston. Given that on the Birth Certificate for George Harry his parenst are given as George BAXTER & Sarah HOLDEN & this is the only George/Sarah BAXTER husband and wife combination I can find in the area I am assumming that this is his family & that for some reason he was staying with his grandfather William which matches the name given for George BAXTER's father on the marriage certificate for George BAXTER/SARAH HOLDEN Wedding.

  • Notes 
    • (Research):There is reason to believe that George BAXTER was actually born George RICHARDSON, & had a brother Samuel RICHARDSON/BAXTER.

      The Richardson connection is based on information from Ethel Foulds, who recollected that when organising Georges funeral had found a birth certificate that indicated he had been born RICHARDSON.

      Evidence supporting this is that in the 1851 Census, William BAXTER is living next door to a Sarah RICHARDSON with sons George & Samuel with siblings Henry and Sarah. The mother, Sarah b, 1815 Lea Marston, is listed as being Head of the house, married, but no sign of the husband.

      In the 1861 Census, George RICHARDSON/BAXTER is found under the RICHARDSON surname, as was brother Samuel, with parents being William and Sarah BAXTER.

      From 1871 Census on, both George and Samuel have adopted the BAXTER surname.

      George's birth year/place is also varies in the censuses.
      1851 age 6 born Warton ==> c. 1845 (Samuel age 3 Warton ==> c.1848)
      1861 age 10 born Warton ==> c. 1851 (Samuel age 13 Warton ==> c.1848)
      1871 age 22 born Polesworth ==> c. 1849 (Samuel age 26 Warton ==> c. 1845)
      1881 born c. 1849 Rosliston
      1891 born c. 1849 Rosliston
      1901 age 50 born Polesworth ==> c. 1851

      A possible birth but baptism about 30miles from area where born so unlikely this is it.
