    1911 summary books

    I am trying to track down the 1911 summary entry for Sidney Fletcher Dorrell, in the hope that I can then find the census entry on Ancestry. I have found him on the 1911 census page.

    Details I have:

    Sidney Fletcher Dorrell, b. 1875, living in Canterbury Kent, along with
    Isabel Laura Dorrell b. 1874 and
    Irene Laura Dorrell b 1893.

    I am interested in finding out the marriage and children details for this couple. Can anyone point me in the right direction, as I can't find any Dorrell's in Canterbury on Ancestry.

    Thanks,

    Linda

    There is a Mr. Danell living at 1o Orford Road Canterbury, one male and two females. Image looks like Darrell/Dorrell

    1898 Sidney Fletcher Dorrell marrried Isabel laura PIDDUCK
    Reference on BMD Camberwell 1d1762

    There is an Irene Laura Dorrell on BMD, but not born until 1900
    Tunbridge 2a769

    Above will be the correct entry for Laura, as Sidney and Isabel are in Tonbridge on 1901 census
    With them is a daughter called JANE L Dorrell age 8 months (obviously mis recorded)
    States he was from Holloway, London.

    Birth for Sidney
    Apr 1874 - Islington, Greater London, London, Middlesex

    He is on 1891 census in Lambeth with his parents and three siblings

    Died 1961 sept Qtr in Bridge, kent
    His wife Isabel died Sep 1967 - Canterbury, Kent, England

    Bridge is a town just outside canterbury

    It's possible Irene Laura Dorrell married in 1930 in the Brighton area to Percy C Cooke, as there is that marriage listed, showing Irene L Dorrell as the wife.

    Think you'll find the daughter was 10 not 18

    Thanks for your replies - that was what was confusing me, the age of the daughter and the 2 names given for her. All makes sense when it's explained!

    Thanks to Elaine's instructions in a previous post I have now managed to see the census entry itself, and the age is definitely 10. Easy when you know how. Thanks again to everyone.

    It really is instructive seeing the actual householder schedules. All sorts of additional information, as well as "helpful" enumerators making inspired (but wrong) assumptions about places of birth.
