Hello Geoff,

Thank you very much.

Simon in 1911 is a foreman metal carrier in Parish of Eston.

Son Simon 23 b. Southbank. Seems to fit although I can't match Ann to St. Catherine Adelaide must be A.

Hi Dave

There's the following from FreeBMD 1891 - 1901:
Q3 1893 Michael Hollywood, Middlesbrough. [9d, 584]
Q4 1895 Catherine A Hollywood, Middlesbrough. [9d, 577]
Q3 1896 Ellen Hollywood, Middlesbrough. [9d, 607]

It looks as if the initial is the middle initial:

A. for Catherine Adelaide and F. for Mary Frances.
