Thank you ;-)

Still needing help, please.......I have ordered Elizabeth Porteus birth certificate, Isaacs sister and there is no father listed. I have ordered her mother Cathrine Porteus death certificate 1922 and it says she is a widow of Robinson Porteus 7 Backchurch Street, Auckland. I can't find any info on Robinson Porteus? Do you think Robinson would have been a surname? I am not sure how to do a census check on an address. I am baffled!

Kind Regards

A search of the 1911 census on FMPast does not bring up a Backchurch St in Auckland.

As she kept her unmarried name and presumably did not marry, could the registrar assumed her partner's surname was Porteous?
