No luck finding him yet, no.

Matilda Doe being the mother was something I considered very early on, but she is not the mother according to his birth certificate, and she never appears with him again on another census record. She is accounted for up to about 1930, when she died. Her maiden name was Brooks and she married Charles Doe, and they had about four children. They appear to have separated at some point, and whilst it is possible that Matilda was Edwin's mother, there is no written evidence to substantiate this.

Currently, all we have so far is Edwin's birth certificate and his appearance on the 1891 census. That's it. There is nothing else.
