The 1911 original census record also shows that Harriet has had 7 children and one had died. Harriet is head of the family so Jesse her husband appears to have died.

Some presumed marriages of Jesse and Harriets children.

Frank is missing from the 1911 census record - but there is a marriage listed in Staffs BMD of a Frank Austin to Eady M Turner at Stoke St Peters in 1911. They also are on the 1911 census records living at 36 Wood St, London Rd Stoke, they have no children and Frank is working as a Boiler Maker. (This is not proven but seems likely).

There is also a marriage listed in Staffs BMD of a Jesse Austin to Alice Sherwin in 1920 at Stoke St Peters, again not a proven record but seems likely as Jesse is not a common name.

There is also a marriage listed in Staffs BMD of a George Austin to Doris Deakon in 1930 at Stoke St Peters, again not a proven record .

There is also a marriage listed in Staffs BMD of a Harriet Austin to William Moss in 1918 and also another of Harriet Austin to Albert E Mason in 1932 both at Stoke St Peters, again not a proven records .

There is also a marriage listed in Staffs BMD of a Ada Austin to Percy Hill in 1924 at Stoke St Peters, again not a proven records .

The above suggestions presume that they were all married at Stoke St Peters and would of course need the marriage cerificates for confirmation.
