  • Notes 
    • This story begins with the marriage of Jacob Samuel Pockett and Caroline Louise Stead on 20 May 1836. Early records show that the name was originally spelled "Pockette". There may be a French connection - perhaps to the time of the Norman conquest of England in 1066. At that time many French names were Anglicized. The family tradition has it that Caroline came from a better class than her husband. One account has Jacob Samuel Pockett working as the gardener for the Steads. Apparently, the 'not-so-young' people (they were both nearing thirty) ran off and got married. Her family may have disowned her as there are reports that the Pocketts were not well off and Caroline had to bake her bread in a community oven.
