      NOTE & QUERIES:
      1) According to Burt Walter Edgoose there was a family connection between Charlotte COOMBS and a GAUNTLETT

      2) In the 1911 census his widow Charlotte states that she was married for 43 years and had had 7 children of whom 4 were living. We know of one who died in 1870 and one who died in 1900, so one child is unaccounted for. None of the census entries from 1871 to 1901 helps.
      Miles, Male 1881-1881
      Miles, Male born 1884
      Miles, Harry died 1884
      Miles, Harry Ernest 1885-1885
      Miles, Frederick John 1888-1889
      Miles, Male 1896-1896

      3) Barford, the name of Charlotte COOMBS's house in York Road, Aldershot, was an area near Headley in Hampshire.
