Thanks for your help, I don't think I would have found that! Will have a closer look at the records!

Had another look - thanks for pointing out what I missed earlier! It suggests that Sarah may have been known by Ethel...

Or is it possible that Sarah wasn't Harold's Mum's real name? Would it have been easy to have given a false name when registering birth?

The registrar would accept whatever info was given - in those days there was very little in the way of documentary proof of ID

I have tried to find a link to the Cox's and Pamplins via marriage but there is nothing obvious.

It's interesting that Ether has a brother named 'Harry' although that could just be a coincidence!

Harry was b around 1877/78 but is not on the 1881 census with Frederick & Emma.  I did wonder whether he was Harold's father but without the Nicholls connection it's virtually impossible to say.

The 1881 has a Harry Cox b 1879 Wimbledon but he is with parents Henry & Annie Elizabeth (nee Halsey)

In 1881 Frederick & Emma Cox were childless and lodgers with the West family but in the same household were several "Hope" children.  One of them was the William Hope visiting them in 1901

Thanks for your help with this. It's a mystery how they all kneweach other, but hope I'll turn up something...

This weekend I came across inscribed family photos that suggest that Harold stayed in touch with the Pamplins, and may have been adopted by them - the photos are inscribed 'from your sisters'.

Still unsure of his parents though!
