Note: consequent on investigating where 'Theepshead' might be,
I (Rosemary) derived the following from FreeBMD and Census:-
Tom ORAM b. Chard, SOM, in 1881, and living in Bromley, Kent,
where Helen Mabel was apparently one of twins. They had a
servant Caroline JUPP (20, b. Orpington Kent) living with them.
In 1871 William TRIVETT (36), Sophia (31), Annie Mary (11),
Louis Arlan (6), Ellen Constance (3) are in Radford, Notts.
FreeBMD provides a William Oram TRIVETT, b.1863, Ellen
Constance TRIVETT, b.1868 and another William Oram TRIVETT,
b.1871 in Notts + William TRIVETT and Sophia Jane ORAM
on the same page for marriages Sep 1/4 1858, Nottingham.

Elizabeth (8), Abel (6), Ann (4) are in Southwell, Notts.
William was born "Shapshead", Leics.
