help with Winsor family of Newton-Abbot area

Hello, everyone! I am researching my maternal grandfather's family. My grandfather's name was Archibald Alfred Richard Winsor. He was actually born in Suffolk, but his father came from Devon. His father's name was William James Winsor born about 1851 in Ipplepen. William James married a Mary Ann Veale at Newton-Abbot, I think. They were married in 1872. I found the family on the 1881 census living at Kessingland, Suffolk but they moved back to Newton-Abbot, Devon some time before the 1891 census because they are found living in Newton-Abbot. What I am actually looking for is information on the first 2 children of William James Winsor and Mary Ann Winsor. Their first daughter was named Frances and she was born at Devonport in 1873 or 1874. I can find no record of her on the 1891 census so I'd like help with that. I can't find a marriage or anything. Also, in 1891 the daughter, Violet Winsor, born at Portsea in 1875 or 1876, is found at the Devon-Exeter Hospital for the Sick and Poor. After that I cannot find her anywhere either. Also, someone found the family on the 1901 census living at Marldon, Devon. By this time William James has remarried and there are 5 more children. If anyone can help me trace Frances Winsor and Violet Winsor, I'd really appreciate it. thank you so much!
