Hi
Im slightly confused my Great Great Grandparents were Edward Springfield Hunt and Emily Chilton as certified by their daughter (my great grandmother's) Ivy Marjorie Hunt's birth and marriage certificate (Which i have)

I believe Edward's parents to be Edward S Hunt and Fanny, using census images.
The marriage for Edward and Fanny would appear to show Fanny's surname to be Cox at the time of her marriage to Edward.
This is their marriage
Name: Edward Springfield Hunt to Fanny Cox
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1873
Registration district: Hillingbourn
Inferred County: Kent
Volume Number: 2a
Page Number: 953

Their daughter also named Fanny - Fanny Hunt born c1874 Leeds Kent, appears on the 1881 census with her parents
1881 Census
1881 England Census about Fanny Hunt

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1874
Relation: Daughter
Father's Name: Edwar Hunt
Mother's Name: Fanny Hunt
Gender: Female
Where born: Leeds, Kent, England
Civil parish: Leeds
County/Island: Kent
Country: England
Street Address: Upper St

However, in 1891 she does not appear with her parents but i believe the following is her
1891 Census
1891 England Census about Fanny Hunt

William Cook 65 Head
Fanny Hunt 17 Grandaughter

My query is with this census, if this is her which im pretty sure it is as there would appear to be no other possibilities. She is listed as Grandaughter to William Cook, the problem is i cant see where the name Cook would come in? Her father was Edward Hunt and so any paternal grandparent there would also have the surname Hunt, mothers name was Cox and so any paternal grandparent would have the name Cox?

The only things i can think of is it being a great grandparent but he doesnt seem old enough? Or either he should be a Cox or Fanny Cox was actually a Cook?

What do you guys think?
Thanks

EDIT:
This is her marriage in 1894 to Daniel Ledger

Thank you Maddie, i hadnt thought about that? It does look possible though even the address looks like Upper St which i believe is where Fanny was in 1891 with William?!

Thank you

Ok i think i know what happened here?! I have Fanny Cox's parents as James Cox and Ann (but unconfirmed) if im to go with what i have i believe the marriage you just posted is Fanny Cox's parents (James Cox and Ann Giles) in which case William Cook would be Fanny Hunt's Step Great Grandfather?

No thats not right, scrap what i said... That James was far too young to be Fanny Cox's dad however James Cox senior is the one so William is Fanny Hunt's step grandfather
Thanks again
