As first child was born in Ireland, they may well have married there

However, this certificate should tell you the mother's maiden name.

Hi
I wonder if William Holloway jioned the Army between 1861 Census and 1881 Census.as on the 1881 Census it is stated him as Staff Sergt Militia.

And maybe his Parents have died before the 1861 Census as he is living with his Uncle or Aunt
Any ideas

have you actually found the record of the marriage between `Holloway and Fowler?

It will be easily found on freebmd if it exists

Have you found the birth registration for Gertrude on the GRO site which includes MMN?

This is her death....................

First name(s) Gertrude A
Last name Holloway
Gender Female
Age 50
Death quarter 3
Death year 1936

...............NO indication of a third forename

and NO birth to match the age at death

Where did you get the info about a birth in Lincs in 1886 and the names of the alleged parents?

Have you got the 1913 marriage cert to see whether she knew her father? AND to verify her second forename

If you still want to know about Thomas Fowler, he was born c1865 in Spalding , Lincs.

Thomas Fowler
in the 1891 England Census
Name: Thomas Fowler
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Relationship: Head
Birth Year: 1865
Spouse: Sarah A Fowler
Child: Gertrude Fowler
Ethel M Fowler
Birth Place: Spalding, Lincolnshire, England
Civil Parish: St Botolph
Ecclesiastical parish: St Botolph
Residence Place: Boultham, St Botolph, Lincolnshire, England
Registration District: Lincoln
Sub registration district: Lincoln Home
ED, Institution or Vessel: 9
Neighbors:
Piece: 2590
Folio: 19
Household Members:
Name Age
Thomas Fowler 26
Sarah A Fowler 28
Gertrude Fowler 5
Ethel M Fowler 2


Same YOB and POB given in 1901 census.

There's no father named on Gertrude's birth cert, so we don't know who her father was.

He may, or may not, have been Thomas Fowler, for all we know.

I don't see him on censuses before marriage.
You need the marriage cert to see who his father was.

ADDED:

Ah, it looks as though Thomas was also illegitimate - no father shown at birth:
