    Thank you... I believe her mothers name may have been Catherine. Is there anything for a death of a Catherine Decoursey?

    I've looked here ....

    ... using various spellings etc, but no luck.

    Can't find the family on the 1881 census +/- a wife for Patrick.

    Oh some confusion here!

    I identified Ellen Decourcey as born 1875 Stepney, mmn Regin, which led me to the marriage of Edward DeCourcy and Ellen Regan in March 1860!

    So, where are Robert and Ellen in 1901?

    Sister Kate married on 16 Oct 1892 at the parish church in Poplar:

    Walter William Cain, 19, batchelor, boilermaker (I think it says), son of George Henry Cain, labourer
    Kate Decoursey, 18, spinster, daughter of Patrick Decoursey, labourer.

    The variation of spellings of Decoursey is enough confusion in itself!

    I also read that 1911 as showing that Robert had 3 children, 2 still alive and 1 died, while Nellie had 1 child that she brought into the marriage.

    It looks as though Nellie was married to a John Ayling, and that he must have died between 1901 and 1909, though I can't find that death.

    If it is the one that I think, Nellie's maiden name was Edwards

    Marriages Dec 1893 (>99%)
    Ayling John Lemuel Guildford 2a 102
    Edwards Nellie Guildford 2a 102


    Look for births to Robert Pratt and Nellie after 1911 with mother's surname Edwars. Use https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl


    Have to go out now
