   Another name for Esther was Esther Gentle.

  General Notes:

I think this is the same Esther Gentle who was baptised 5 May 1844, giving her date of birth as 7 Dec 1829 - the "7 Dec" coincidence suggests the same child, not another. And the 1829 /30 dates are the wrong way round for the first one to have died, before the next was given the same name.[ahk.ged]

Sister in law Emily Gillet a widow age 50 yrs born Ashwell a straw plaiter was visiting on 1881 census March 2004 phoned Paddington cemetery to find area of grave 9528 as could not find it on various visits. I spoke to a lady named Maria who informed me it was a communial grave but there was no mention of an Esther Lucas buried there,
possibility Esther remarried.
