Notes: In 1911 census Henry was living in Idle near Bradford, together with his sister Sarah Spittles, nee Simmonds and son Thomas. His sister died in 1921. Whilst searching for information on Abraham Henry we found he had been baptised twice. Once as Abraham Henry Simmons in 1875 and again as Abraham Henry Simmonds in 1879 (click here to view the records). The baptisms took place at different churches.

There is a family story that Henry married again after the death of Hannah and fathered two children. No evidence has been found to substantiate this, as of 2016.
