I was looking to see what happened to Rose Morris ( b1888) and have just found her living with her father Charles Morris in 1901. They are onboard the canal boat Evelyn at Stoke on Trent. Charles was age 50 ( so born about 1851) and his place of birth is Stockton Brook, Staffordshire. His occupation was Boatman (Barge).

They never appear together on the census, but that is only one day every ten years. There is no way of knowing what was happening on all the other days. Charles job as a canal boatman would obviously take him away from home a lot of the time and it may be that he was simply away working on each census  night. We certainly know that he was away on his boat in 1901, but the fact he had his daughter with him suggests that he was part of the family group.
