George William Robinson was born at Tealby Lincolnshire on 22.6.1867, He married Annie Elizabeth Brears in 1893. On 31.3.1901, they were living 46 Newton Avenue, Acton, Middlesex. He was mentioned in his father's will written in 1908. His wife Annie was living in Heeley Sheffield in 1911 with their two children Elsie and Thomas Robinson. She is shown as a widow. George was working as a foreman in boot repairing business in 1901. I have been unable to establish a death or any relevant information in Middlessex, can anyone help please

Or maybe one of these, if he was indeed still alive in 1908, and if the family had already moved to Yorkshire:

The George William Robinson who died in 1909 had been living in Olivet Road, Sheffield, before being admitted to the South Yorkshire Asylum on 2.11.1907. He died on 19.11.1909. His wife was living in 110 Albert Road, Heeley, in 1911. Does anyone know whether these addresses are close to each other.

Looking at the two addresses on Google Maps, they appear to be about 1km apart, as the crow flies.

Argyllgran. many thanks for that.
Chris many thanks for your many entries. George Hilton Robinson and his family are not related to my Robinson research.
George did marry Annie Smithies and I have traced the children by that marriage. I am trying to prove the George William who died in the asylum is the correct one.
I have the will of his Father who names him as a beneficiary in 1908. His father was a Thomas Robinson. The Acton records are correct as are the Sheffield ones.

Once again many thanks for your help

(well that's good then, lol, thought it was a case of mistaken couple and Marriage year!)

Looking likely the 1909 Death, if there was a chance of any Admission Records...
