I think this must have been the reason for the 1904 passport application - the ages are way out but it's just too much of a coincidence with the names.:

UK Incoming Passenger Lists, 1878-1960

Name: A J Lichtstern
Birth Date: abt 1846
Age: 58
Port of Departure: New York, New York, United States
Arrival Date: 10 Oct 1904

He was travelling with Mrs (52), Lucille (23) and Bertha (28)

No occupations or addresses given.

I know the passport application said he had dark skin but I think the transcription of negro on the 1920 is a mistake:

Looks like Marian is using her maiden surname.

The ages are hard to make out as the image is faint and has been written over.
