    Notes 
    • Was William the son of Michael or just Olive?
      He was born a couple of years before they married, as a Whitehead but was recorded as a Goatham in the 1861, 1871 and 1881 censuses - and listed before the other chidlren.
      (Olive had had another son before marrying but he had died aged 1; perhaps the same man was father of both.)

      But William married as a Whitehead, with the space for his father's name left blank, and subsequently the family used the Whitehead surname. I think he was probably not Michael's son.
    • (Research):n.b. There were 2 William G Whiteheads born in Bredgar 1856 / 7 - William George Whitehead and William Goatham Whitehead. Early in my research I had combined the 2 but have now separated them!
