Freebmd only shows one registration for that name, at that time, in that place, although as there was no penalty for non- registration there may have been others born.

If there was a breakdown in the marriage, it would be easier to pass yourself off as an unmarried cook than to explain about family, I guess.
The fact that the children are with their father at the time of census means Christiana would be free to go wherever.

Once John died, she wouldn't have to pretend anymore, so could revert to her married name and become a 'respectable widow'.

Did the children go back to her ?

gwyn do you think this could be the woman and if so why do you think she went back to her maiden name then back to blackburn in 1911?
