Williams / others notes
Alfred Williams: \"Mrs Sarah Calcott, Northmoor, Oxfordshire. Northmoor is a lonely little village on the banks of the Thames between Standlake and Oxford. The road is broken by the river which must be crossed by ferry to Bablock Hythe and Appleton. The old woman, who lives alone, sang me several songs including Lord Bateman, while her pet jackdaw sat upon the arm of her chair in the fire light. At the same time, though extremely poor, she insisted upon my taking tea with her, and proudly filled my pockets with choicest apples to eat on the way home\" - Lord Bateman, Ox.282.2

The identification beyond 1871 must be considered to be tentative. However, the presence of George Edgington in the household in 1881 suggests that Mrs Calcotts original family name was Edgington and therefore supports rather than contradicts the link [CDW]
