    • "Octavis" was a farmer of 320 acres employing 2 men.

      The 3 siblings enumerated here in 1881 are assumed to be part of the same family as Augustus. Neither William nor Mary seem to show up in the 1881 census but this "Furze" family lives in East Putford, headed by Octavis, near where William, Mary and Augustus lived in 1851. Also, the name "Octavius", suggests a connection with "Augustus", both being names of Roman Emperors.

      Subsequent censuses in 1891 and 1901 show first William (1858) and then William son of Augustus living on East Putford Barton.
    Alternate Name Furze 
    Reference 1675 
    Notes 
    • Octavius does not seem to appear in the 1891 census, nor the 1901.
