Mine is just as complicated! but quite interesting as not all ag labs, one very posh aunt was reputed to have her family as undertakers, but further investigation found her father was a marine engineer on a fishing boat I think, and was found dead at the bottom of a ladder, having died from suffocation. (drunk I suspect given his nickname "whisky X"). He died when she was about 6 and her mother when she was 11, so think the undertaker family were the ones who brought her up.
It is quite unusual that your ancestors were moving about such a lot in the mid 19th c. But it gives you some variety to work on!!!
