Notes for William KNIBBS:

William can be seen at the 1861 census return, living at the Grocers Shop, Westcott Barton, Oxfordshire, next door, I believe, to his parents, John and Mary Ann Knibbs.
William Knibbs Head Mar 21 Grocer & Saddler Westcott Barton Oxon

William's wife Jane was away at the time of the 1861 census, living at Milton, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire in the household of her sister Mary Ann Gardner and her husband Anthony Gardner:

Mary A Gardner Wife Mar 33 Oxfordshire Milton
Eva M Gardner Daur 7 Scholar Oxfordshire Milton
William A Gardner Son 5 Scholar oxfordshire Milton
Eliza Bedwin Sister Un 21 Oxfordshire Milton

We can see from the 1841 census return that Jane had a sister named Mary A Bedwin, so she was a sister-in-law to Anthony Gardner.
