1. No record of this marriage in England or Wales has been found, but the births of the children listed were registered with the mother’s surname as Gillott. The 1911 census records the family at 26 Amies Street, Battersea, with Elizabeth as the name of George’s wife and that they have been married for fifteen years.
2. An Elizabeth Gillott, born in Leeds in 1874, matches the details given for Samuel Yeo’s alleged wife in the 1921 census. She had married William Johnson in 1894 (registered at Nottingham in the fourth quarter, recorded as Eliza). There is no record of her marriage to Samuel, and as no record has been found of the death of Samuel’s first wife Charlotte, perhaps they did not marry.
3. Elizabeth Yeo, formerly Gillott is named as the mother in the 1901 baptism record of Agnes Yeo, from a Catholic ceremony at the church of St Clare in Arundel Road, Liverpool.
