    Notes 
    • "Dykenuke" (per 1851 census) is probably Dyke Nook, just south of Knitsley & west of Lanchester. Lintz Green, where his baptism says his parents live at the time, is about 10 km north of Dyke Nook. Sister Mary was born at Low Collierley, in the same neighborhood, in 1826.

      No marriage match in FreeBMD and no likely marriage spotted in GRO indexes. Can't find John or Sarah in any post-1851 census.

      Sarah Ogleby in 1841, before she got together with John, lived next door to the mysterious Robert alias Thomas Wanless and his wife Margaret in Cockfield. Was John a relative of theirs?
