Subject: Re: TWICE in the 1881 census?

I appreciate the doubts that others might have. However, if someone can
verify for me that there are TWO different people by the name of CORNELL
FFITCH, both aged 24, both born in Warley, one living in East Street,
Barking with mother, and the other in Hart Street, Barking with wife, I
should very much appreciate it. I have not been able to find a second one
anywhere else, and would love to know if there are two people.
