Note: Robin Lovelock email 21 Mar 06: Wife Jemima was shown as "Widow" in the 1851 census return. Graham Lovelock email 6 Apr 06: There are two deaths in Free BMD : 1Q 1839 ref 6 133, and 4Q 1849 ref 6147.The question is which is the father and which the son? We don't have the1841 Census record to clarify for us. In fact, neither of these deaths could be that of Edward Jnr (bap 8 Apr 1832 at Tidcombe), since we have him marrying Jane Nightengale Jun 1860 and having several children in the years 1861 - 1879, substantiated by 1881 and 1901 census records. 6-Jun-06: The 1841 census record provided by Robin Lovelock eliminates the 1839 GRO death entry as pertaining to this Edward L, leaving the following one as likely: Deaths Dec 1849 LOVELOCK, Edward, Hungerford 6 147

In spite of considerable efforts by Robin Lovelock (see email 22-Apr-06) we have not been able to elucidate the connection between James Lovelock and the Parratt/Parrett family, with whom he is living in the 1861 and 1871 censuses - James is recorded as "grandfather" in the 1871 census. Robin also found the Parratt family in the 1881 census, without James Lovelock who must have died in the meantime:
