Hi

The info posted by Spendlove referes to the 1901 not the 1891 census.

In 1891 William & Sarah also had a 12yr old daughter Louisa b Tisbury which suggests one or other was previously married

Louisa Blandford birth, Tisbury, Mar quarter, 1880, 5a, 226. This would suggest Sarah was married previously.
Edit: I shouldn't assume that, should I? Louisa could have been born out of wedlock.

Wow! Thank you all so much for all this information!

We didn't know William Frank LEWER had served in WW1, or that he had lost 2 brothers in that same war.

 Spendlove, thanks for finding William Frank LEWER's birth family!

This is amazing!

Thanks!

Sigh.

Have a good night, or morning, everyone.
