I am trying to locate the following family on 1901 census. I have them on 1911 as follows: 65 Swinbrook Road, Kensington, London -
George James Brown 35 b. Kensington greengrocers asst.
Emma Edith 33 wife, sometimes down as Emily Edith),
Lillie dau 10 (Lilian Ada),
Alfred son 8,
Nellie dau 7,
Tommy son 4
, Violet dau 3,
Rose dau 1.

Incidentally the above couple did not marry till 1913 although they had several children before they tied the knot, so 1891 backwards would have George James Brown presumably with family.

I appreciate that only husband,wife and elder child will appear on 1901 but I just cannot find them. Neither can I locate George James on any other census so getting back to another generation is a no-no which I have had to accept.

Any help with 1901 appreciated. I will continue to search. Thanks

Rootgatherfer - thank you so much. I have spent ages looking for them - I must be blind or stupid or something. Thanks again.

Fredk - thank you too - you are both stars.

I'm not being funny Margaret, but are you sure this is not the marriage?

Perhaps you know for a fact they were married in 1913 and, if so, I do apologise.

EDIT No Emily Edith appears to be with William John Dover in 1911. Please ignore this and accept my apology. :-(


I think to get further back you will need to purchase the marriage certificate.
