Hi Libby,

Even though I have access to the 1901 census these are not showing, but at a guess it could be the name Kirkland has been mistranscribed.

thanks for that you would find them living in warrington cheshire but i have found that amelia and jenny kirkland later moved back to nova scotia and got married there so i know that there is no mistake but i just cannnot understand how they are wrote down as annie millward children and born the same years and places as them
again thanks for taking a look xx

Hi Libbygirlxxx,

I would hazard a guess that they are 2 separate families!? They could well be related through their Mother annie millward 1874 head 28 born nova scotia, in as much that maybe she had a brother or sister who had died and maybe she had taken the family on and later went to Warrington!
I would of thought that seeing that the children are of a similar age, that that would discount Annie Millward as the natural mother. Notice also there is no Father (head).

Just a guess, but there could be obviously other explanations.

I would try and back track to find the birth details of Annie Millward and track her and her siblings and family. But maybe it may of been a relation of the missing Father?

Good luck, and let us know how you get on,

Regards,
Dave
