Richard Anthony Neale married Annie Gardiner Mar 2884 Mile End 1c 687

Birth of daughter Martha Maria registered Mar 1886 Poplar 1c 864 mother's maiden name Gardiner

Image of 1911 Census has entry Minnie Neale late Perks Married Under 1 yr (crossed out)

It looks as though Richard has listed all his children whether at home on Census day or not as the Enumerator has crossed one out and written 'Not Here'

PERKS Ellen Dau 6 West End Middlesex

I can't see birth reg to fit those in 1881. I've not seen the image yet. All the census images for 'P' on my tree are yet to be noted and viewed at the local library.

Both born Warwickshire?

Marriage

Walter Perks/Mary Brian Mar 1873 Kensington 1a 247

Lily, Kate, Walter and Mary all have the mmn of Brian. It looks like Walter may have been a widower when he married Mary Brian.

Walter Perks married Ann Bromwich in Birmingham in 1866 but this is not your Walter as I can find them still in Birmingham area in 1881 Census. I know it was Ann Bromwich as the two chidren they have in 1871 Census have mmn Bromwich.

Still can't find a birth for Rose but I think I may have solved Ellen. The birth year is a bit out from the age given in the Census but

Helen Rebecca Perks Sep 1873 Marylebone mmn Brian

I have also found an Amy Louise Perks mmn Brian registered June 1878 West Ham who died 1880, and the Kate in the Census died 1882

The image of the 1873 Walter Perks & Mary Brian marriage is on Anc.

Walter was a bachelor and Mary a spinster. Also he was a minor and she was full age. If you look at the image for the 1881 census it clearly has him as 28, not 38 so that fits with his age at marriage.

I assume Rose was Mary's illegit. child prior to her marriage but so far I haven't found her.

One site is 20 years out in 1891. The image says 37 and it's been transcribed as 57!

I can't find anything on Rose Perks either - no birth, marriage or death reg and not in any Census apart from 1881 as far as I can see.

Looking for Walter in 1871 and his birth reg - probably born Warwickshire not Kent. Looks like three possible births.
