This looks like a very old thread so I am not sure if my comment is relevant now. Just to say that Henry Herbert Nicholls Sines is Agnes's younger brother. Henry ( or Harry as he was known) was my Grandad and Sarah was my great Gran. The story goes that Sarah failed to inform Grandad of his full name and he only discovered the 'Nicholls' addition when he joined the Navy and the truth had to come out for the paperwork. It was a shock to find out that this was his real fathers name. Maybe Agnes was another Nicholls child?

Hi sorry if I have confused you
George Sines and Sarah Roberts were married Kingston Surrey in 1895. They then had a daughter Agnes in 1903 but name and surname of father on her birth certificate was left blank, yet when Agnes married in 1920 on her marriage certificate the father was listed as Henry Nicholls Sines and not George
Hope this makes more sense
