divorce not particularly likely at this time, so living with, rather than married to might be the case.

Do you think so, Osprey? I've searched high and low for records of a divorce from Florence and/or Hilda, and can't find anything!

divorce wasn't affordable - cost of a lawyer & filing a petition in the London registry. It also took time. The husband could divorce on the grounds of adultery alone, the wife had to prove another offence as well until 1923

Very interesting reading and food for thought - adds a whole new dimension to the situation!

I come a little late to this discussion (as always !) but Florence Edith Walker is a part of my extended family.  Ancestry has her marriage to Clement Robertson Walker in 1903 but thereafter they both seem to disappear.  Can you enlighten me as to the "Hilda" connection ?  I am not not entirely convinced that the Florence Edith Walker I have found on the 1911 census at 86, Langham Road, South Tottenham is in fact the correct person.

There is a death of a Florence Edith Walker aged 24 in freebmd.org.uk in the quarter of March 1906 in Kensington 1a. Could this be the reason her daughter was with Hilda?

Thank you for that.  Since my posting I have come across other posts on Rootschat which suggest that Vera Florence was baptised in about 1906 at Tottenham and that her parents were indeed Florence Edith W. and Clement Robertson W. - in which case the 1911 census identification is in fact correct.

I had not realised, nor thought about the fact that Walker is/was such a common name.

My interest lies in the LOUGH side of the business because I am one.
