Of the three census returns I can find them, Thomas is born in Hull on all three 1881/91/1901, Mary Ann his wife is born Doncaster on 1881/1901
In 1891 there are three children Margaret 11, Mary A 9 and Helen 7. Margaret and Mary born Sheffield, Helen in Hull
On 1901 census Thomas is on his own aged 44, a green grocer Hawker, Margaret married in 1900, Helen was not found, and mother Mary Ann 40 was living with her married dau Mary Ann Feetam 19
I can find a Hawkins family in Hull in 1861/71, but not with child Thomas.

I still have reservations about Thomas's marriage. It was 10 years after the first child and after a further two were born. Do you have confirmation that his wife was Mary Brady?
