Edwin Haywood was shown as a journeyman tailor aged 26. William Frogatt was shown as aged 60, a lodger, a widower and a farm labourer.

Herbert Cree was born before 7 April 1854 in Palterton, Scarcliffe parish, Derbyshire.1 He was the son of John Cree and Mary Robinson. Herbert Cree was baptised on 15 April 1854 in Scarcliffe parish, Derbyshire, England. Residence is noted as Palterton.2 He was also recorded as born on 23 April 1854. This is clearly incorrect as he had been baptised on 15 April. (His mother signed with her mark. His father had died on 5 April.)3

On 7 April 1861 Herbert Cree was living in the household of Edwin Haywood and Mary Robinson in Palterton, Scarcliffe parish, Derbyshire, along with John Cree, William Frogatt and Anne Spray. Edwin was described as a tailor and beerhousekeeper aged 34. Mary his wife was 41 and a shopkeeper. Mary's sons by her first husband, John aged 12 and Herbert Creee aged 7, were scholars. Also living in the household were Mary's father, William Froggatt aged 64, who is described as Edwin's father-in-law and a widower, and Anne Allen aged 69, described simply as a visitor who was in fact the mother of Mary's first husband John Cree (and therefore grandmother of John and Herbert Cree.)4

On 7 April 1861 Herbert Cree was living in Palterton, Scarcliffe parish, Derbyshire.5

His mother Mary Robinson died on 18 November 1868 in Palterton, Scarcliffe parish, Derbyshire.

On 2 April 1871 Herbert Cree was living in But Lane, Warsop, Nottinghamshire, England. He was described as a tailor aged 16 living in the household of Samuel Renshaw, a tailor and draper. There were two other tailors in the household, Samauel Renshaw's son John, aged 22, and a 17 year old. We might assume that the latter was an apprentice along with Herbert Cree.6 He was a witness at the marriage of Mary Barnes and Joseph Cree on 22 August 1876 in Wesleyan Chapel, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England.7 Herbert Creeappeared in the 1881 census in 35 Beetwell Street, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England.
