    • 1881 Port Hope:
      Mallett, Josias, age: 30, b: England, Methodist, Teamster
      Mallett, Serah, age: 30, b: England (wife)
      Mallett, William J., age: 6, b: Ontario
      Mallett, Henry, age: 1, b: Ontario

      Two houses down:
      Bew, John, age: 73, b: England, Church of England, Labourer
      Bew, Elizabeth, age: 70, b: England (his wife)

      Bews are shown here because Elizabeth Bew is shown living with Josiah's family in 1891 census. Could be just neighbours or could be related somehow (maybe to Serah).

    • William Geo. Mallett living with Selena Boundy. This is second entry for William Geo. in the 1891 census.
    Census 15 Apr 1891  B 1/5 - 210, Hope Township, Durham County, Ontario, Canada Find all individuals with events at this location  [3, 7
    • Josiah Mallett, age 40, b. England, parents b. England, Teamster, Methodist
      Serah, age 40, b. England, parents b. England, unemployed in week before census
      William, age 16, b. Ontario
      Harry, age 11, b. Ontario
      Etta, age 4, b. Ontario
      Note: also included an Elizabeth Bew, age 82, b. England, parents b. England, Church of England [in 1881 census, John & Elizabeth Bew lived two houses down.]

      On another page, still in Port Hope, staying with Selena Boundy, age 66 was William Geo. Mallett, age 16, b: Ontario. Not sure if related in any way.
      [Update: Dec/10 Selena Boundy seems to be formerly Selena Hutchings (nee Chislett), Sarah Hutchings mother. Looks like she remarried John Boundy after George Hutchings died.]

      This census showed birthplace of each person's parents. In all cases here, it said England.

      As per GW : Getting back to the Mallets in Port Hope. Your entry for Josiah (I302) makes note of a William Geo. Mallett, a 16 year old living with Selena Boundy in Port Hope in 1891. My brother has a postcard, postmarked Jan 1909 in Port Hope to Mrs H Mallett on 198 Seaton Street Toronto, congratulating her on her new baby. (This is probably on the birth of Dora, RB's mother). The letter is signed "Selena". This may be the the same Selena Boundy with whom William Geo. was living or it may be her granddaughter Selena M Hormel. Either way, it further links the William Geo living with Selena in 1891 to Josiah and Sarah and to my grandfather Henry/Harry (I306) and provides a big hint that Selena Boundy was somehow related to either Josiah or Sarah.

      My brother and I became intrigued and wanted to find out more about this. We found a number of internet references which seemed to point to indicate that William Mallet had been counted twice in the 1891 census and, in fact, the Wm George Mallet living with Selena Boundy is William Mallett (I307), son of Josiah(I302) and Sarah (I305). The proof of this came when my brother located the entry for Sarah Mallett in the Port Hope Death Registry. Wm George Mallett is named as the informant and he is listed as the son of the deceased. Sarah (I305) was born Jan 27, 1851 and died Oct 11, 1928 according to this entry.

    • As per GW : The 1901 census shows one William Mallett in the Port Hope area. He lives with his wife (Edna or Edie born Sept 11, 1874) and daughter (Elsie born Oct 12, 1900) and my grandfather Henry/"Harry" (I306). Harry's DOB is listed as Nov 9, 1880 and this is consistent with the ages listed in the 1881 and 1891 census. William (I307) is listed as born Oct 9, 1874 and again this is consistent with the previous two censuses.

    • As per GW : Additionally, although it is difficult to read, it looks to me like William (I307) in the 1901 census listed his profession as CarriageTrimmer. The 1911 census shows William George Mallet living on Cavan St and working as a Carpenter. The William G Mallett who married Edith Bowen in 1899 was an Upholsterer. All are trades which are associated with the Carriage Industry. According to http://www.porthopehistory.com/1907businesses/index.htm T B Chalk was a local business involved in the Carriage Industry and operated it's plant on Cavan St.

    • As per GW : Only one William Mallet appears in the 1911 census for Port Hope. He has a middle name of George but a different year of birth (1877) than any of the William entries before. But this William George is born in the same month and also has wife named Edith born same month/different year and a daughter Elsie born same month/different year as recorded for William (I307) in 1901. This William George is listed as a Baptist, as was the William in the 1901 census. The 1891 Census shows both Selena Boundy and the William George Mallett living with her to be Methodists. When William (I307) was living at home with Josiah and Sarah in 1881 and 1891, all family members were listed as Methodists.
