bullet  General Notes:

Sarah's maiden name is based upon the name of the father-in-law, James GODFREY, residing in the household during the 1881 census.

I don't know for sure that this Sarah was linked as the wife of John Lee and mother of Lucy Lee. However in the 1881 Census for Folkards Lane, Brightlingsea, Essex, there is a Sarah Lee, age 48, mariner's wife. Her husband is not listed. But there are children of Sarah, son Joseph, age 23, unmarried, mariner; son Robert, age 15, mariner; son Harry, age 12, scholar and daughter Ida, age 10, scholar. Lucy Lee, born 26 Mar 1865, would have been 16 years of age at the time of this census. Yet she was not listed. However, in the 1891 census of Brightlingsea on Folkards Lane, John Lee, master mariner, age 65, widower, is listed as living with his daughter Ida, age 20. So it would appear that this is the right family. See 1881 Census-as enumerated, County: Essex Page: 08521, Brightlingsea. DEA

bullet  Birth Notes:

Year of birth is calculated from age given in 1881 census. Maiden name is based on name of father-in-law, James Godfrey, age 72, widower, residing in household during the 1881 census.
