    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 3.36

      I've shown Matilda Darwin's marriage date: 7 Jan. 1819 as recorded in the Darwin/Bland bible record, which I regard to be more reliable than the Mary Darwin Hope bible record that shows 17 Jan 1819. Tim Grana has located the children of the family from the 1840 and 1850 SC census records.
