In 1851 Catherine and Mary Jane are alone in Knottingley - Matthew is away working as a waterman but hasn't been found yet. In 1861 and 1871 Matthew is working as a railway labourer. In the 1891 census Catherine is living with her son Thomas.

It appears that daughter Jemima visited Australia as her eldest child (in 1891 census) was born there. Catherine died in 1896.
