    Notes 
    • Note that the 1st 2 names (Jemima Charlotte) seem to get reversed in various records
    • From Mary How/Wickes: "The stories we have heard about this lady is that she was widowed when living in London and that she went by boat from London to Plymouth - quite an adventurous thing to do. She must have been a remarkable lady.
      In Plymouth, outside the gates of Devonport Dockyard, she founded a 'Dame School' - this is a peculiarly a British term suggesting a school run by ladies for young children. In her old age Charlotte returned to London where she died. We have no evidence that she remarried."
    • From K Wachter's book "Charlotte Jemima was one of 17 children. Her sister, Rhoda Naomi Massett Butterworth, married to John L. Butterworth in 1840, was a favoured aunt of Thomas Waldo.
      Frank How at age 13, in an early diary, mentions visiting his great-aunt Rhoda?s grave in Bristol with his father. This was during a visit from his father while attending Colston Boarding School in Bristol, England [c.1884]"
