I have not got access to the 1911 Surrey census so I cannot answer your question. I have however looked at what I think is your family in 1901, from which I presume that you have quoted Elsie's DoB. Her age on that may have been transcribed as 11 but I think that is was only 4 as one stroke of the pen seems to have faded. This will give her birth as 1896/7, she could be the Elsie Ellen Collins, registered in Farnham District, June quarter 1897, Volume 2a, page 124.

As mother Ellen was only 24 at the time it would be unlikely that she had a daughter of 11.

Hi
Thank you for that I have the 1901 Census but not all the children are on that one so I was trying to find out who the others were. Thanks again. I have just
found one of them who was 100 last Tuesday and still going strong so I though maybe he was onthe 1911

Re: 1911 census

Hi,

Think this is the family you are looking for : -

All family members are listed as born Bourne Farnham Surrey.

Family is living at Beesley (Or Bresley) Cottages. Midd Bourne, Farnham Surrey in 5 rooms.

Leonard aged 41 working in Gravel Yard
Ellen aged 35 Working as a HouseKeeper

Leonard aged 15 Working as a Domestic Gardner
Elsie Aged 14 Working as a Dairy Girl
William aged 12
Minnie aged 10
Albert aged 8
Florence aged 6
Gladess (exact spelling on return) aged 5
Mary aged 3
Dorothy aged 9mths

that is 9 children but I have found a further 4 possible children born after the 1911 census.

Frederick G Born 1911
Daisy H Born 1913
Sylvia G Born 1914
Winifred MJ Born 1915

All of these 4 children are born Farnham Surrey.

Hope it helps

Happy Hunting

Claire

P.S Mother Ellen was Ellen Knight prior to her wedding- not sure if you are aware.
