I can help with Edward's background although age fluctuates:

In 1891 he's in St. Alkmund, Derbyshire with family - shown bc.1849 All Saints, Derbyshire
In 1881 he's unmarried in Nottingham shown bc.1847 Derby
In 1871 he's an inmate in Portsmouth, Hampshire - then a mariner - bc.1848 Derby (incorrectly transcribed on Ancestry as 13 when original page states 23).
1861 in Derby with family:

James Doud    35                      born Ireland
Mary Doud      33                          ditto
Edward Doud  15                           ditto
Catherine Doud 8                     born Derby
Patrick Doud 10                            ditto
Mary Doud  6                                ditto
Margaret Doud 4                           ditto

In 1851 family are in Derby as Doud.

So, although raised in Derby, Edward Doud/Dowd was actually born in Ireland (ca.1845-6) like his parents James and Mary.   Edward was the eldest child and I guess if his parents never actually told him he was born in Ireland he assumed he was born in Derby like all his younger siblings.  (Brother Patrick's birth in 1850 shows mmn as Keenan on GRO Index).

Annette,
I think this has been documented in other threads re Edward but good to have it together. :)

I posted re Charlotte and Kate because I had read in one of the threads  that Dowdy supposed she was from an earlier relationship. She was and was Smith  :)

From this and previous threads (with additions):

Edward DOWD m Kate FORD in Lincoln 1884

Edward DOWD b Ireland c1845 on 1911 census
Kate/Catherine (wife) b Birmingham c1854 not found on 1911 census.  ?d Dec qtr 1926 Derby age 68
children:
Charlotte (SMITH) b c1871 Alfreston.  m Arthur OSCROFT.  In Arnold, Notts on 1911 census.
Maria b 19 Mar 1883 Lincoln.  Child on 1891 and 1901 census.  m William POTTER - on 1911 census.
Mary Ellen b Dec qtr 1884 Lincoln (21 Nov).  Child on 1891 census. Not with family in 1901.  Poss m Mar qtr 1910 Derby George DUNN or John HILL.
Catherine b Sep qtr 1886 Derby.  d Sep qtr 1888 age 2
George b c1888 Derby.  Not with family in 1891. Child on 1901 census
James b Jun qtr 1888 Derby (20 May).  Child on 1891 and 1901 census.  Joined army. Died in Great War.
Elizabeth (Lizzie?) b Sep qtr 1896 Derby.  Child on 1901 census
Margaret b Sep qtr 1890 Derby (11 Jun).  Child on 1891 census. Not with family in 1901.  Poss m Dec qtr 1906 Derby Ernest Jones.
Edward b Dec qtr 1894 Derby.  Not with family in 1901.  ?dJun qtr 1895 Derby age 0
Martin b Sep qtr 1899 Derby.  Child on 1901 and 1911 census

There is always the possibility that George was a cousin to the other children staying temporarily with the family in 1901.

NOTE - George is definitely not George Dowdy b1888 d1909 as he is with his parents on the 1901 census.
