    Notes 
    • In early 1888, Annie was staying with her sister Sarah and Sarah's husband Edwin Pitt when she became pregnant to Edwin. Annie was admitted to the Christchurch Female Refuge on 8 September 1888, aged 20. The Refuge's Casebook recorded that Annie had a son on 7 Oct 1888, and he was baptised "William Henry". The Refuge Diary noted that Annie left on 18 April 1889, after her 6 months elapsed. She went to stay with a Mrs Nixon in Addington "until she got a situation". The baby went to Sarah, who gave it up for adoption in 1891. She had 3 or 4 children of her own by then.

      John Edward Jacombs and his wife Judith (Lawson), both in their 50s, adopted William Henry and named him William Henry Jacombs, although he was sometimes recorded later in life as William Henry Holmes Jacombs.
