William Joseph BAKER , born 1890 in Northampton (All Saints), was recorded living with the family in the 1891 and 1911 censuses and described as adopted. He does not appear by that name in the 1901 census but there is a Jack Harris mentioned, born the same year. No birth or death record in Northamptonshire for Jack Harris can be traced. And in 1911 Sarah Ellen was recorded as having 5 children born alive to her which accounts for all of those listed above. An inference we draw is that, for reasons unknown, William was recorded as “Jack Harris” in the 1901 census.
