Note on Wife: Rebecca TINSLEY

No definite proof that this is the correct Rebecca. Marriage record needs to be checked. It would seem quite possible, however. This one was baptised at the correct time in Rosliston, which is about a mile and a half from Coton In The Elms, where she says she was born in the 1851 census. The marriage also took place in Burton On Trent registration district, which includes Rolsliston and Coton In The Elms. A check of the marrigae record should confirm this.
