1891 census look up

In my research I had contact with another member of the family who has three children born to Catherine and John Dowling before they married in 1910. I think they are the three mentioned on the 1911 census.

Thank you again Tenerife Sun

In 1891 they were not at the address they were at in 1901 ie 6 Orange Street Holborn

Also they weren't at 10 Baldwin Gardens Holborn the address at her time of marriage on 12/02/1900.

********by the way Arthur John Rogers was a widower when he married Catherine the first child was born in 1899 and was possibly from his first marriage, although the 1911 says Catherine had three children all living but I can't find their births.
