Will post what I found on family, if OP does not come back, with being such a large family may help others who are researching the 'Head' surname.

Henry b c1860 names his daughters Clara, Gentilla and has a son named John, so defo think family connection.

This also appears to relate to Clara in above 1861 census. Which is likely sibling/half sibling to Henry.  Mother Ann is mentioned.

Ann in 1881 is likely possible working as housekeeper to a family in area, still single, not widowed.

The Henry Head that solidrock has is the correct GG Grandfather to me (Alice Gentilla Head. b: Dec 6 1889,  d: June 1966, is my GreatGrandmother).
I have had the correct birth marr. death of Henry,  but until i read the story about Ann did it allow me to fill in some of his past in regards to the Ann's. This has allowed me to firmly add Mary as the mother to the elder Ann (1831).
   In the past 6 months i have been trying to find some information on my mothers side of the family. My mothers grandfather Healey changed his name some time during WWI and no one has any idea what it was before the change. So I have been looking for Grandma Healeys (Head) past.
   So entering the information i had on RootsChat has been so much help i want to say thank you. My mother is 73 and has been working on some of the family for 20 years. She will soon be joiining the RootsChat very soon.
   I spend better the 100 hours a week working and sometimes i dont get to check on here for several days at a time. Thank you all for being patient with me and ill do everything i can to help you if possible.
   Thank You
   Jim
