Notes

The christening details are from the IGI site, but they do not match up with the transcription of births, marriages, and deaths at St Thomas, Dudley made by Roger Boswell.

Although his place of birth seems to be Dudley and his parents lived in Gads Lane Dudley in 1851 and 1861, in later life, he described his birthplace as being Tipton (which is adjacent to Dudley). There is also the issue of his father's occupation: the 1851 and 1861 censuses give Henry senior's occupation as labourer, but Henry junior's marriage certificate gives his father's occupation as coal merchant. Although this raises some questions over Henry's parents, there are no other candidate Henry and Hannah Smarts that could be his parents. It may well be that Henry senior was a coal merchant when he came from Gloucester around the time of Henry junior's birth,

Henry Smart (1827) trained as a shoe maker, but seems to have not been able to make a go of it.

Irrespective of the above details, there is no doubt that the Henry married to Hannah and living with his brother and sister in law in 1851 is the one who married Hannah Savage and is shown in the foillowing census entries. The only 'weak link' is to the 1841 census entry.
