1851 Census Records of Hendford Yeovil

Above and below: there is an error in this record which shows No 23 Hendford occupied by Caroline Newman and family. Edwin Newman's wife was actually called Charlotte.
With her is recorded five of her children: Edwin 21, then an articled clerk, BA Oxford; William 19 also an articled clerk; Arthur 7; Roland 5; and Henrietta 2.
Also present was John Leark, a pupil (articled clerk); a footman and four other servants listed overleaf (see below). There is a note in the column "Rank, Profession or Occupation" at the top of the young Edwin's details which says "now of the Temple, London". It is not clear whether the note applies to the young Edwin or to his father. My guess is that it applies to his father and was added as an explanation of his absense from Yeovil.

Below: The record for No 80 Hendford which shows Jane Newman 72 as the head householder living with her unmarried sister Mary Garland 70; two nieces: Mary Ann Berkely 20, and Mary Jane Berkley 4; three nephews: John Berkley 27, William 3 and John 1; together with a servant, Sarah Ward. Who was this family? Were they related to Edwin Newman?
