Can anyone comment, please?



In the 1851 Census we have the following family all living in Yates's Turnpike, Mereworth, Kent:-


Samuel Bratton aged 62 Married Turnpike Gate Keeper b Wrotham

Mary Bratton aged 63 Married b Ludsdown

Mary Ann Pett aged 12 G Daughter b Offham

William Pett aged 32 Son in law U (=Unmarried) b Northfleet



Question - all this is quite clearly stated, so how can a Son in law be unmarried?

Any elucidation welcome, as Samuel is my second Great Granduncle, and several of us are interested in the William Pett!
