1891 she's potentially back with another child, Thomas

Thomas is a child that is listed with the family in 1911 but crossed out and I think he (age 22) marries Mary Ann Bates 25 Dec 1912 in Hoxton.  His  father is listed as Thomas Westwood (deceased) farrier with witness Emily Westwood

Added Emily Westwood (age 20) married Charles Franks in Hoxton on 5 Aug 1918 - Father listed as Thomas Westwood - deceased - Blacksmith  and one of witnesses William Stephen Duck (her mother's  latest husband)

Louisa and Mary are discharged from Mitcham School in 1894 back to a workhouse for onward discharge to parents

William and Albert leave in early 1891 to the Fever Hospital - William returns in June 1891 and stays until June 1894 when he goes into service with a Mrs Callow of Hoxton

1896-98 Albert  is sent to the Training Ship Exmouth

Hope this helps.

Marriages of  Emily and Thomas Westwood list their father as Thomas Westwood - blacksmith/farrier

I wonder if this might be Thomas and Mary Ann in 1891 living in St Lukes - minus any children  :-\

Thomas Westwood 28  b St. Luke, London - Tinsmith
Mary A Westwood 35 b St. Luke, London

Possible  death of Thomas Westwood age 36 1899 Shoreditch
