Nice job, rootie!

Gloria - George and Henry would be one and the same person going by the baptism record I posted above. Not uncommon for names to be reversed.

I'll try to copy over to this thread.

I'm pretty sure that Rosina's age in 1901 is 7 (not 4) which ties in to the 1911:

BOSWELL, Henry Head Married M 40 1861 Coppersmith's Labourer London
BOSWELL, Laura Wife Married F 42 1859 Exeter
BOSWELL, Henry J Son M 13 1888 London
BOSWELL, Laura Daughter F 10 1891 London

I can't follow what you're saying? I thought you said the 1911 census had 2 Ethels aged 13 and 17 but the 1911 census that I'm looking at has Henry, 51, wife Mary 42 and daughters Ethel, 13 and Rose, 17.

The second Ethel in 1911 on FMP is actually Rose on the original image:

BOSWELL, Henry Head Married 25 years M 51 1860 Coppersmiths's Labourer London Holloway
BOSWELL, Mary Wife Married F 42 1869 Blouse Machinest London Hoxton
BOSWELL, Ethel Daughter F 13 1898 Schoolgirl London Hoxton
BOSWELL, Ethel (actually Rose) Daughter Single F 17 1894 Kitchen Girl London Hoxton

The 25 years married and 4 children born (all alive) is written on the line for Henry, not Mary.

Note - if you see something weird like two children with the same name always check the original image.

Gloria, what exactly are you trying to find out? Is it when (if) Henry and Mary married? (They may not have done).
