(John's age on the death certificate is higher than expected, and no age was given at the burial. Nevertheless, this seems likely
to be the right death, as it was registered by the Master of the Workhouse where John had been an inmate in 1841 - see below.)

There may have been more than one daughter Elizabeth in the first family. Uxbridge registers show two baptisms of an Elizabeth daughter of John and Sarah TOLLIT, cornchandler, on 6 Jan 1805 and 9 Jan 1806, whilst Hillingdon registers and BTs show burials of Elizabeth daughter of John and Sarah TOLLIT on 6 Jan 1805 and 5 Jan 1806. The baptism on 9 Jan 1806 seems to have been added to the register later, separate from the main list of entries, and with Henry being baptised in July 1806, it seems possible that there was actually only one Elizabeth rather than the two or three suggested by these records. As yet I have found no evidence of a marriage or later death/burial, nor any census entry, for an Elizabeth TOLLIT born c1805/6.

The surname of the Frederick John baptised 18 Jul 1828 in High Wycombe was given in the register as CAUDERY, but I think it may nevertheless be the right baptism. The surname at the preceding baptism was also CAUDERY but with the parents' details different, and as all entries on this page appear to be in the same hand, it is possible that the register was written up later and Frederick's surname mistakenly copied from the line above. The parents' forenames (John & Elizabeth), and father's occupation (Coachman) are the same as were given at Henry William's baptism in 1826. (There is no surviving BT for 1828.)

Variant spellings of the surname TOLLIT include TOLLET, TOLLETT, TOLLITT etc.
