If anyone has access to the 1911 UK Census I would be extremely grateful for a look-up for Walter Fowkes, who lived at Edgbaston, Worcetershire. He is shown as having a spouse Rosetta Fowkes and there are mentioned children Rose, Gladys, Irene and Lilian Sarah. I would like to know the relationship of these children to Walter Fowkes. Walter E Fowkes married Rosetta Woolf in March qtr 1884 in Kings Norton but Lilian Sarah is the child of Mary Ann Cairns and Walter Fowkes who married in December Qtr 1883 in Derbyshire. Lilian Sarah was born in 1884. In subsequent census years 1891 and 1901 Walter is not shown living with his wife Mary Ann and she is living with her parents with her daughter in 1891 Census. If both Walter Fowkes are one and the same person unless they got a quicky divorce which would seem highly unlikely in those days I am thinking that Walter was perhaps a bigamist....any ideas and assistance would be much appreciated.
