I have omitted the other residents - there were 265 at the time! John Hogan is my Great-grandfather who married Lydia Lewis (Noted below living in Stockton-on-Tees...). He is listed here with his mother, Rachel. It seems they experienced terrible family tragedy - John's Father, Erasmus, died 2 years previously from an accident at work. His death certificate records he died of "Paraplegia, Softening of the Cord, and Exhaustion".
