Notes from the 1881 census
It would appear likely that Sophia Deane married James Deane in Sept Q.1872, Chelmsford, ref. 4c/279
Although the census information is confidential for 100 years, it is now clear that Frances’ age is not correct: she was born in Kent in 1831/2. So Frances, née Deane,was indeed 21 when she married Percy in 1852, as she stated, which is confirmed by the age of 39,shown in the 1871 census. In fact, Percy Jnr was born Apr 13, 1857 in Paris, the informant being Sophia, née Deane, Frances’ sister.The various censuses imply a range of dates of birth for Alice,from 1854 to 1863. Her record of birth has now been found: she was born in Chelsea in the Sep Q.1854 ref. 1a 117, The three nieces were Vane’s daughters by his first wife.
