    Notes 
    • There is some confusion about Mary's date of birth.
      The baptism source gives parents as Solomon Royes and Mary. The use of "Hougham" and the date of birth (2 years after the previous sibling) favours this being our Solomon and Mary but Tooting Graveney is a surprise! We have a date of birth about 1824.
      She appears in the 1841 Census in Jersey, Channel Islands, with her parents and sister Adelaide, but aged 15 - but notice that all the ages in this return are rounded to the nearest 5. In fact her sister Adelaide is also listed as 15 but she is about 20! So, born about 1826-28.
      In the 1871 census she is listed as age 42 - born about 1829.
      Her age at date of death (1824) is given as 48 - born about 1829.
      Her son Charles is born about 1845 based on his age at date of death. Using baptism data she is about 21, using other data she is 16!
      Her daughter Alice is born about 1845 based on her age at 1881 census. There is no mention of Charles and Alice being twins and it is not clear who is the eldest. It suggests there was about a year between the births and they could have been in the range 1844-1846.
      So: Did she understate her age by 5 years at some point?

      Falmouth Post (Jamaica) Friday 3 Aug 1877: DIED: At 2 Palace Green, Kensington, W. London, on July 14th, Mary Hougham, the beloved wife of Joseph Bravo Esquire of the firm of Bravo Bro & Co., and sister of the late Honorable Charles Royes.

    Notes 
    • There has been some speculation that the children were born in Jamaica and that Augustus died there. Census returns indicate that the children were born in London and Isle of Jersey which suggests the marriage took place in one of those placeses. (The family of Charles Augustus Turner were in St Helier in 1841 and his father was born there abt 1796 - all the children were born there.) If Charles and Mary did go to Jamaica and he died there this would have to have been between 1849 and 1854 (conception of Ellen and marriage of Mary to Joseph Bravo). See notes on Joseph.
