Notes for Esther KNIBBS:

It's my conjecture that Esther is a daughter of Hannah, born out of wedlock.
The only appearance of Esther is in the 1871 census when she was seen to be living at South Street, Kingswinford, Staffordshire with her grandmother, Mary Knibbs. She was listed as Mary's grand daughter.
Mary had three daughters who could have been Esther's mother. Two of the daughters (Jane and Emma) were married before Esther was born, but with the third daughter, Hannah, there's uncertainty as to when she married other than at some time, between 1861 and 1871.
