    Notes 
    • (Research):Linking the death to this William
      The marriage PR entry and census entries for William all just show one Christian name, William. The marriage entry names his father (who had the unusual name Edgecumbe) and shows that both father and son were moulders. There is just one Edgecumbe Farnham, moulder in the censuses so we can be sure of which William was this one in the censuses. They show he was born in Tavistock. A William of the right age, son of Edgecumbe and Ann (i.e. parents as in the census) was baptised in Tavistock in 1833. These show he did have the middle names Edward Kerswill.
      From this we can be sure it was this William who died in Plymouth about 3 weeks after his wife.

    • GRO ref: JUSTHAM, Susan to Farnham, William q3 1864 Tavistock RD 5b 639
      Appear to have been no children - checked GRO online index for Farnham (exact) with mmn Justham (phonetic) 1862-1871, also both names with 'similar sounding' and the same replacing Justham with Instham (a common mis-transcription). Given the variety of ways in which Justham was spelt, though, it is possible that there were children with an odd spelling of the mother's maiden name or mis-transcribed.
