George and Harriet can be seen in the 1881 census for England and Wales, living at Park Lane, Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

Harriet Annie Knibbs, the daughter of Harriet's brother Henry was still living with them, so I wonder if perhaps George and Harriet may have taken her into their own family after her father died and mother remarried.
