This is for a friend please.

I can't find this person on the 1911 census. These are the census I did find him on and I think he married Fanny Elwick.

I have looked for a marriage and they married in 1904 but for the life of me I cannot find either of them on the 1911. Fanny died in 1916 and George died in 1946 as below.

Was just wondering if any of you clever helpers can find them on the 1911 please as this is not an easy name to look up.

Thanks Mel.

I see George was a commercial traveller 1901. So he might be anywhere - even Scotland maybe!

1911 on Ancestry is TUMMERS

Dea Report 20 Nov 2012 13:12

The strange thing on the 1911 image is that the years married and number of children has been entered but the enumerator has crossed through them in red!

It makes me wonder if the couple had seperated?? - I can't see why this would have been done if he was just away for a day or two?

Hi All sorry I was called away by the other half.

On the bottom bit where the address is it says For Fanny Tummon so perhaps she could'nt write?

Did George re-marry?

Ancestry trees suggest this one but I don't understand why it is in Romford?

Marriages Mar 1918 (>99%)

There are a further 8 children born in Hull?

2 further births Tummon/mmn Elwick post Sep Qtr 1912 in Hull RD
Ellen Jun Qtr1913
Ivy Sep Qtr 1916
So either George was still around somewhere - that would fit in with the death reg. (or that's the surname they were given at Registration).

Yes Stuart it does seem as though Fanny died either in or just after childbirth with Ivy.

I am still trying to find George on the 1911 but I suppose he could have been anywhere. It is a strange surname to look up as it could be transcribed as anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have tried many.

I think the second marriage was in Romford Essex as that is Where Edith \mabel Peterken was born. It comes under West Ham. I am from that way and West Ham covers a big area for births.
