Where is this one in 1911 if it's not the one with George & Eliza Harling?

If Eliza is an error for Clara then where is the birth for Clara with mmn Watts ?

In 1861 the family are in Lambeth with daughters Florence and Lilian RG09/365/F146/p6

In 1871 they are in Camberwell with daughter Lilian and son Arnold RG10/721/F55/p66

1881 they are in Wandsworth with daughter Hilda and son Douglas J E RG 11/666/F41/p6

In 1891 they are in Frome Somerset with daughters Lilian and Hilda RG12/1908/F16/p1

I can find these births
Florence Esther Mar 1856 Lambeth 1d 364
Lilian Mary Mar 1859 Lambeth 1d 397
Arnold Ferrers Jun 1867 Camberwell 1d 546
John Edward Douglas Sep 1871 Camberwell 1d 573
Hilda Marguerite Jun 1874 Wandsworth 1d 654

Can't see Esther or Samuel in 1901/1911

I think you might be looking at a different Esther Neale. I cannot find births for Mary Ann or Eliza with mmn Watts and why aren't they with Sam and Esther in at least one of the Censuses?

NEALE Esther Sophia of 6 Avenue du Lac La Tour de Peilz Switzerland, Widow died 30 January 1915. Probate London 16 April to Richard Tovey Rawlings gentleman. Effects £1390 1s. 6d.

... then I found

Thanks Emeltee.

I can't find the connection to George Harling so it looks like a different Esther Neale.

I'll remove those two census records.

Esther Rawlings born 5 July 1807 Frome to John and Rachel. Birth noted at Babcox Lane Meeting House (Baptist), Frome
Samuel Rawlings born 20 March 1802 Frome to John and Rachel. Birth noted as above.

Richard Tovey Rawlings Jun 1859 Frome 5c 602 mmn Tovey

1861 Frome RG09/1654/F79/p25
Richard T Rawlings with parents Samuel and Sophia plus siblings

He is in Frome for all Censuses except 1911 when he is in London.

Marriage
Samuel Rawlings/Sophia Tovey Mar 1839 Islington 3 131

It looks like Richard Tovey Rawlings and Esther Sophia Neale were cousins.

Transcriptions arrived in the mail today.

Samuel looks to have died after 1893.
