Looking for mother of Fred Bourne, b. 1887, Leeds
« on: Friday 15 December 17 21:02 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm having trouble finding Fred Bourne's mother, Annie Maria Bourne. I can't find Fred in childhood on any census, although I can find him in adulthood, married, on the 1911 census. His birth record was easy to find, and it states his father was unknown, and that he was living with his mother at 24 Florist Street, Leeds. I was unable to find this street in the 1881 or 1891 censuses, but this is mostly because I don't know how to specify a street to look at on Ancestry. I was able to find the other side of the street, but that's all. I believe his mother is likely the Anna Maria Bourne who married either William Hodges or Robert George Coates in 1889. This knowledge hasn't helped me find her in any census, though.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ancestry does not allow a street search on the 1881 or 1891 censuses

Thank you everyone for the help. You definitely seem to have found the right person. I'd wondered whether Fred had taken his stepfather's name and reverted to his birth name later, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Thanks.
