    absolutely no idea what this means - but thought worth noting!
    That is interesting! - thanks so much. Wouldn't have found that as I don't have FMP.

    William and Caroline called their first child William and he died as an infant and then a second son William in 1859, so that name was already used up. I wonder if it's
    a mistake for Willamina since the date of birth would be right for the "Emily" on the 1871 census? Niece Sarah used Willamina in the naming of her eldest daughter later.

    William and Caroline had also had an Emily/Emma in 1854 and she was registered as Emily - though used both names - which is why I thought the second Emily might be a granddaughter.

    Don't know why the last child would be Emily on the census - though mother Caroline is "Sarah" on the 1861 census so obviously just a mistake.

    I can see George Hubert's death in 1907 but I haven't spotted them in 1901 yet.
    I've had a look at that marriage and was unsure - will take another look. Thanks so much

    oops sorry Elaine hadn't noticed you had posted
    thanks Elaine and Carolyn

    It definitely looks like the second "Emily" has been wrongly registered and then given the wrong name on the 1871 census.

    The William baptised in 1864 was actually the son of William's sister Leah - born illegitimate, though his parents later married, but never baptised as an infant apparently - he was about 18 when he was baptised and he did it to get married in a church, which I thought was quite interesting.
