    1841 British Census for Spalding, Lincolnshire, England
    1841 British Census for Spalding, Lincolnshire, England
    2 facing pages of the census show 2 families of Muffetts. On the left John Muffett, aged 30 with his wife Mary and sons Robert and James. On the right Charles Muffett aged 55 with his wife Hannah and children Thomas aged 15 and Charlotte aged 13. It’s possible, but not proven that Charles is John’s father - the ages fit, and the fact that both are Brickmakers makes the connection more likely too.
    1870 US Federal Census for Chester Twp., Burlington Co., New Jersey, USA
    1870 US Federal Census for Chester Twp., Burlington Co., New Jersey, USA
    Census spread over 2 pages shows Robert Muffett with wife Mary J, and children Sarah J, Rachel, Robert, William and Hettie. Sarah J is possibly the same person as Mary E who was aged 1 year old in the 1860 Census. The next adjacent family is John Muffett aged 71, born in England, so quite likely Robert’s father, and Samuel aged 16 - a son of John’s possibly and brother or half brother of Robert.

    1880 US Federal Census for Chester Twp., Burlington Co., New Jersey, USA
    Census shows Robert Muffett with wife Mary, and children Rachel A, Robert B and Hettie. Living adjacent is John - the likely father of Robert - with his wife Mary Ann (who from her age is not Robert’s mother) and a niece Alice Wood.

  • Notes 
    • John is shown as the adjacent family to Robert Muffett in 1870 and 1880 Census. He could well be the father of Robert, but this is unproven. In 1870 John is living with a Samuel Muffett aged 16 years born in New Jersey (in 1854). In 1880 he has a wife Mary Ann Muffett who is 53 years old, and born in England (as were her parents). At 53 she’s too young to be the mother of Robert - possibly the mother of Samuel from 1870, but then where was she in 1870?

      ===================
      In 1870 his property value was $2,500 & personal property $1,000. No wife was listed, but in 1880 he had a wife Mary Ann, age 52, born in England, parents born in England, also there was an eleven year old girl named Alice Wood, listed as his niece. She was born in England, and her parents were born in England.

      The John & Robert Muffett House, in Burlington County, is listed on the register of historic homes, ID# 3737. [6]
