A real mystery. This person (William Henry?) can be found in the 1861 census, described as "Son", aged 4. George's sister Mary (see below) had a son William H, but he would have been 14. Possibly a clerical error or maybe the original William H died and this would be a younger brother. In short - we don't know!
