  • Notes 
    • From the 1841 England Census for Crowhurst, Sussex (HO107 Piece 1105/1 Folio 5 Page 3) Caroline, 12, was with her parents William, 50, Manufacturer, and Filly (sic), 55, at Powder Mills, Crowhurst, Sussex, England. With her was her brother Charles, 7. Also present in the same house were Ann Elliot, 81, George Cramp, 20, and nephew William Eldridge, 3. All were recorded as having been born in Sussex.

      Note: I believe that William junior was Frances's son.


      Mike Harris notes:

      Memorial insreiption reads on one side "In affectionate remembrance of Caroline wife of William Spray (of Crowhurst)
      born 13 November 1828 departed this life May 10th 1908 also of the above William Spray born July 11th 1828 departed this life July 10th 1915 Father in thy gracious keeping leave we now thy servants sleeping"
