[Interestingly his age from the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1901 match. But differ by the same amount in the 1881 and 1891 census. Obviously the Henry Lowe in the 1881 and 1891 census are the same as they live at the same address and have the same birthplace. Also interestingly Henry claims to be a widower in 1891 and 1901 when his wife is still living and Sarah claims to be a widower in 1901 when her husband is still living. While I can’t exactly locate the Woods Buildings, perhaps they have been torn down, from the census they would have been within 0.35 miles of Royal Park Grove where Henry’s wife was living.There seems to have been a marital break. ]
