    Notes 
    • Extract from "All Present and Correct", an article by Dave Annals in Ancestors Magazine August 2009, acccounting for British citizens who were living overseas on census night:-

      ..... There were no such problems in the case of Harry Culpin. Harry was born at Tur Langton, Leicestershire in 1877 and after joining the army as a young man, married the wonderfully named Benedicta Jane Rhydderch at Colchester in 1897. By the time of the 1911 census Harry Culpin had risen to the rank of Battery Sergeant Major in the 96th Battery of the Royal Field Artillery. He is listed immediately after five commissioned officers on the census page. On census night his unit was garrisoned at Tempe, near Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State and his wife and children are easily identified in the associated returns for the married quarters. Benedicta Jane is listed along with four children, born in Woolwich, Langford, Preston and Ewshott respectively. Harry and Benedicta had by this time lost two children, one of whom can be recognised in the birth, marriage and death indexes as Joe Rhydderch Culpin, who died in Woolwich in 1900, shortly after his first birthday.

      Harry Culpin had a distinguished army career - he was mentioned in dispatches during the First World War, was commissioned from the ranks in December 1914 and eventually attained the rank of Captain. ..... [10]
