There is some doubt about this transcription, due to crossings-out and enumerator's marks on the return.

There are some curiosities here. I take Sarah Ann Davies to be Sarah Ann Davies née Skidmore, the wife or widow of Elizabeth Davies' eldest son Enoch (see the whole family). Enoch and Sarah Ann's family were living next door to Elizabeth Davies in the 1871 census of Darby Road, Rowley Regis. George and Joseph Davies were the sons of Sarah Ann.

Eliza and Emma remain mysteries. If Eliza was really Sarah Ann's sister, then presumably she was originally Eliza Skidmore. Possibly there were two Davies/Skidmore marriages.
