Sarah ROLFE was born in 1842 and was baptised on 23rd October that year at St Nicholas, Rochester, Kent, her parents being Thomas and Mary Ann née HOGBEN. She appears on the 1851 and 1861 censuses and then weds William Charles Frederick GILES on 20th January 1864 at St Peter’s in Maidstone. The couple went on to have Florence in 1865 and William in 1867, both born in Maidstone. These children appear on the 1871 census living in Scrubs Lane, Maidstone, where they are shown as boarders in the home of William MARLOW and his wife Ann (Piece 941, folio 96, page 12). However, their parents are nowhere to be seen. The census in 1881 shows Florence and William still living in Scrubs Lane with the now widowed William MARLOW who, just to confuse things, is now using the surname of CHALLENDER. His occupation and year and place of birth are the same as in 1871... (Piece 928, folio 56, page 19) But what happened to the parents, Sarah and William? Over to you sleuths. Thank you.
