That looks really promising Heywood.   Not coming up with a marriage between Richard Sheldon and Matilda between 1875 and 1911.

KNOTT, WILLIAM       FOSTER

Looks like Charles and William died before the 1901 census.

This looks like Samuel's birth reg:

COATS, SAMUEL        Mothers maiden name FOSTER      
GRO Reference: 1877  S Quarter in STOURBRIDGE  Volume 06C  Page 222


In the 1881 census Maria is recorded as Maria Coates Sheldon

In the 1891 census Samuel is recorded as being born in Worcestershire and the other children were recorded as being born in Staffordshire

Thanks for Samuel’s birth   :)
Richard and Marie are a different family though.

Matilda was originally recorded as Coates and ‘mother’ in 1881. Sheldon has been added, I think.
