No only on the 1881c as I do not have the full 1871c.

I've tried - looking for the 2 girls w/o surname specified, mother Jane - nothing jumping off the page in Notts overall.

Also no George Shepherd and variants with wife Jane ....

strange one !

John Sharp 44, Ry Servant ?, b Holme

birth registrations

Christiana Shepherd dec qtr 1864 Southwell vol 7b pg 269

George Thomas Shaw march qtr 1871 Glanford Brigg vol 7a pg 653

But can't see an obvious death for George Shepherd or a remarriage. Do you have any of the birth certificates for confirmation of previous names?

I might have found a possible for George in the right area in 1861
Shed, North Muskham RG9/2474 folio 94 pg 4
George Sheppard 26 ag lab b. North Muskham

Do you have the marriage certificate to confirm occupation and as a guide to their ages?

possible death?
George Henry Sheppard june qtr 1864 Newark vol 7b pg 196
Any children born to a widow would be registered in her married name.
