Notes for Harriet Burt
Her maiden name was Burt although theoretically unrelated to her husband.124,35

In the 1851 census in which was held on Mar 30, 1851 her age was 54 (living with her husband in Montacute, occupation Straw Bonnet Maker). In the 1861 census which was held on Apr 7, 1861 her age was 65 (a widow living on Bishopton Street). This suggests that she was born in 1796 between Mar 30 and Apr 7. However, her age at death was stated as 70 suggesting a birth year of 1795. Another source lists the birthdate as Feb 12, 1796, but ultimately the church record revealed Feb 11, 1796.124,131

She died at her daughter Eliza’s home in Marylebone, and the cause of death was “Senile Decay, Chronic Bronchitis, Certified”; the informant was her son-in-law W.C. Bennett.8
