Could be worth pursuing a 'forename reversal' - not uncommon ... but so far I cant tie anything in - I really need census access !

Its possible he was registered with his mother's maiden name, as she may have later married a Collins - whose name Reginald took ... or he may be adopted in ....

Do you know if he was in the Army ?

I dont have access to the Census nowadays, or I'd look in the overall Hants area for lads of that forename and rough age  .... to see if it yielded any clues - but of course we dont know parents names - he might however, be in an institurtion on his own ... dunno !

A total Dingbat !

Just write to your HR Dept and tell them that as from such & such a date you will be called Ms Maiden-name.

You dont need a deed poll or anything in writing - its your decision.

London and Middlesex / Re: Roberts/Halls. Where are they in the 1881 Census?

I've looked at addresses and via another person who uses The Genealogist had a search on just first names - no luck.
Now you can perhaps see why I am rather more than cross.....

Ken

Well, it wouldnt be the first Family whose schedule didnt get transcribed into the Enumerators Book ... (only 1911 has preserved the actual Schedules - for all previous Census, Providers have used the Enumerators Book to transcribe from   ...)

Out of interest, are there any names entered against the address in question - and are the schedule #s in the lh column in sequence ?

I dont have any subs at present, so cant do a search for you .... I'd try omitting surname & looking for a child (Alonso seems a good bet) in the area, with just his Birth Year +/- 1 to 2 years ....
