Quite a strange one.

Rebecca Murfitt born 29 January 1878, corrected to 1872 is living at 72 Cowgate, Peterborough. She is down as married and is the Manageress of the Temperance Hotel. She is first on the list of occupants so presumably head of household and living with her are John and Marie Chalkley and Thomas Anford.

Charles Murfitt (originally entered as Murkitt and corrected to Murfitt) born 31 October 1875 is a Timber Salesman living at 9 Cromwell Road, Peterborough with a family called Futer. He also states that he is married.
