|George Mobbs and Elizabeth Withers|
|Information passed down by Gladys Irene (Wren) Hart confirms
that these people were ancestors of John Hart. Gladys recorded that George Mobbs was from
Buckingham(shire) and that Betsy Withers was from Midlands(?). She indicated that their
eldest daughter Mary Elizabeth married Stephan Hart in Maidstone. With this information we
are able to positively find these people in the census entries of Maidstone in 1881.
The family located at 16 Prospect+ is next door to the Thomas Hart household at 15 Prospect+. Although the daughter Mary Elizabeth (who was almost 23 years old by this time) is not living with the family, the information on George Mobbs and his wife Elizabeth (Betsy) corresponds. The information "Midlands" for Betsy's birthplace is obviously a mistaken interpretation for the actual birthplace in Walworth, Middlesex which was the birthplace of Ellen and probably of her older sister Mary Elizabeth. In fact, Betsy (nee Withers) was born in Watford, Herts, on the northwest edge of the London area.
