The M stands for Margaret (Ellen Margaret Brown)
Have only recently switch from paternal to maternal branch , so don't know about father's occupation.

The birth date I was given for Ellen Margaret Brown is 11 Oct 1909 Stoke Newington, I myself have only got that quarter in that year.
The birth cert enters the mother as Jane Brown formerly Jones and I don't have a marriage cert

I have a 1911 census for Martin which matches yours.
I would have to go over what I have on them but I do remember I had trouble finding Regie L Martin, thought this must be wrong. I got Reginald Searle, but not pursued it as discovered Brown branch (side tracked again)

Will post Brown siblings later got guests turning up.

Note: Although I have been a member for some time only really started getting into recently (learning the craft). I know I have to organise myself better, be more methodical and stop getting carried away, but I can't help it, it's interesting.

On your last post 16 Jun 2013 20:16 you have a Winnie Brown & a Nellie Brown. This differs from me, Winnie could be a prefered name of Winifred. Nellie Brown I have never heard of until this weekend when I received the same info from another source. The relative who gave me the above info knew Ellen Margaret as aunt Nell.

The birth years that the people you have differ on some (registration?) as I have the same on info iv'e found.

Nellie's address is not one I know and on the recently received birth cert of Ellen Margaret Brown 1909 the address is Painsthorpe Road and the father is a Painter (Journeyman).

If you're born in old are you in March?

Birth year on census return transcription (which is what I posted) is based on AGE.

The person's age is recorded on the census.....the transcriber estimates the birth year from that ........

NELLIE is the most common form of diminutive for ELLEN

Read the tips threads on'll find them invaluable

People moved.......they changed jobs. In exactly the same way as they do now

But, you know that, as your people moved to Sussex..............
