We were able to trace this family through the 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 UK census records.

The 1851 census shows John, Jane and their son, Robert, living at March Street, Dunster. However, by the 1861 census, the family had moved to Taunton where John was working as a bricklayer.

John and Jane Dollin had at least six children then Jane died in 1869. In 1874 John Dollin married Harriett Gill who bore him two more daughters.

In the 1881 and 1891 census records, John was also listed as the Publican or Innkeeper of the Foresters Arms, 93 East Reach, Taunton.

In the 1901 census, Harriett Dollin was a 56 year old widow living with her daughter, Lilly Dollin.

According to the UK Death Records, a Harriet Dollin died in Taunton in 1902 aged 57. A John Dollin died in Taunton in 1898 aged 69. These records are the closest match we have found for the deaths of John and Harriett Dollin.
