I only have FamilySearch to look at. I meant it would be useful if you both typed up the details.

One of you is looking at the incorrect family.

Census can be awkward on there! I thought they would be on FreeCen, 100% coverage of Devon in 1861, but nothing for 1871.

ok, thank you Jamjar and Jonw65.

Did George die in India ?
Ellen was in England in 1881 (in Higham Kent) widowed.
Later that year she married Roger Barnes.

Still a mysterie though. If Rhoda Sarah was an ill. child…., is her father's name known ?

Without confirmation from her marriage certificates I would suggest that Rhoda Sarah was indeed the daughter of George - claimed as such on census (not as step-daughter or 'wifes child' as often shown).

Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.   Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.   Just walk beside me and be my friend.
