In 1911 Edward is still listed as married and there is a gap on the form where his wife would have been listed. Maybe she was just away on the day of the census.

PricklyHolly Report 16 Nov 2012 09:27

She might be in some kind of institution........ie Hospital?

Quite often, people in institutions were transcribed with just their initials.

There is always the possibility that she left her husband and pretended to be single.

Oooo yeah, i didn't notice "John"........just the children.


Edward in the 1901 is a Iron Foundry Labourer.

Dea Report 16 Nov 2012 10:25

Must be the correct family though as everything else matches - even the 'boarder' !!

Perhaps he was 'John Edward' ??

There is this marriage which could fit? :

According to the OP The first child born was Emily but the 1911 posted has an older child Mary Ellen

May be better if Sandra posts the full info she has for the 1901
