    • ** Mary is given as Head of Household and "Widow" on the 1881 Census although, according to our records, her husband James Grant did not die until 17 Sep 1885. He died in the Uxbridge Union Workhouse. Was he already IN the workhouse in 1881? May be I will find out as i move through the rest of the 1881 Census images that I am connecting to "owners"

    • By the time of the 1901 Census Mary is the titular head of the household but Her son, Joseph, and his family are now living with her, probably permanently. Joseph is the only breadwinner so the life of grinding poverty continues.

    • Mary is described on the 1901 Census as 'Living on own means.' This might imply that she had some form of independent income but for a family that has lived life in near destitution, with some members being regular visitors to the Uxbridge Union Workhouse, we can discount that theory.

      From reading various genealogy forums I think the most likely meaning is that was supported by her family and was not having to claim poor relief from the Parish.
