bullet  General Notes:

Sir James Marchant, in his biography of John Clifford (page 18, when describing John's family background, "His mother, Mary Stenson, had three brothers, Silas, John and Elam. These three more than any others exerted a fruitful influance upon him." John and Elam are well recorded in the records but, despite careful checks of census and other records, no trace of a brother Silas has been found. It is possible that the author mistook Silas, son of Elam, as a brother of Elam and John. 183

Education: the Baptist College, Leicester, around the time of the census in March 1851. 271 He was then living in the household of William Glover, a butcher, as a visitor in High Street, Braunston, Northants
