Notes for Frederick INNIS:

Also known as: Frederick Knibbs and Frederick Innis

Illegitimate son of Lucy Annis of Swerford and registered as Frederick Annis at Birth.

Frederick is identified in the 1871 census for Oxfordshire and North Berkshire as Frederic KNIBBS, living with his mother Lucy Elizabeth Knibbs.
Frederick is clearly identified as being the illegitimate son of Lucy ANNIS of Swerford, and was baptised at Swerford as Frederick ANNIS some 9 years before Lucy ANNIS married to Benjamin KNIBBS.

Frederick can also be seen in 1881 but this time, he is calling himself Frederick INNIS, and is seen to be living with his uncle's family at 162 & 163 Herbert Rd., Aston, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England
