Schedule column on 1901


Active member
Can someone clarify the schedule column on 1901 (first column)?

I have the person I want, who was a widow. She's at the same address as another family, but has a different schedule number. However in "relationship" she's listed as wife, married.

I'd expect to see boarder - she doesn't seem related to the family, none of her daughters match the wife of the family at the house. I'd think it could be a mistake by the enumerator, but he has listed a widowed daughter of the family also living at that address as "wid".

So what does same address but different schedule number imply, and is her relationship and marital status just a slip of the pen?
