    In this house along with William & Hannah Roberts and their children who were
    related to the Snelson family lived :-

    Annie Snelson granddaughter unm 17 Domestic Servant Chester

    The return states that Jane (?) Snelson, the head of the family, was temporarily
    absent at the time of the census. This may mean that Jane was Annies's
    grandmother, and therefore the grandmother of William & Hannah Roberts' two
    children. She may therefore be Hannah's mother perhaps making William & Hannah
    the Uncle and aunt of Annie ?
