*note from Ancestry.co.uk regarding the 1841 census:
The ages of people over 15 years old were usually rounded down to the nearest 5 years. For example, someone who was actually 24 years would have their age listed as 20, and someone who was actually 27 years old would have their age listed as 25.

In 1845, at Castle Ashby:

Mr. J. Frail, “upwards to 46 years” head groom (aged 75 at his death 6 Oct 1845)
