T is also a 17 year old Mary A .Caldwall described as this father's 'sister-in-law' who is the Housekeeper as his mother Elizabeth had only just died. In 1881 he is still with his family who now live in Old Ford, Bow, London. His father is now a Saw Mill Forman. In this Census he is called Walter and works as a Clerk to a Brass Finisher. His sister Elizabeth is listed as Kate. His father has married Mary Ann, his wife's younger sister who had been looking after the family since the death of her sister.
