Two previously undiscovered Catchloves have been found in census records.  Tracey DOWNEY found a Ruth CATCHLOVE in the 1851 census, who was born in Walderton c.1787.  She was unmarried living with her nephew William WARES in Chichester.  Ancestry had transcribed the record as Catchtone!  While looking for her In 1841 I then found a different Ruth CATCHLOVE in the 1841 census living as a servant in Devon.  She was born in 1816, but the 1841 census only requires the subject to say whether or not they were born in the same county as the one in which they were living, so all we know is that she was not born in Devon.  Neither of these ladies fit any known families.  See the relevant census pages: added 10 Oct. 2012.
