Thanks Kay. I saw that one but it did not lead me to finding her. I did think if it was her she may have married  and migrated.

Had she been older she could have dropped 10 years of her age but she was only 19.

She has got to be somewhere.

It is possible that she was living with man and took his name without marrying him  :-\

Maybe worth looking at.   Living in Edinburgh

1891

Edward Illingworth 28 England - Principal of  Just? (in 1901 Principal Deaf & Dumb School)
Eleanor Illingworth 28 England
Kathleen M Illingworth 1 Edinburgh
Andrew E Illingworth    4 Months  Edinburgh


Possible marriage  Eleanor Dickson -  Edward Atlay  Illingworth Mar Qtr 1887    Halifax 9a   605

Sorry -wrong Eleanor - the marriage is online on Anc and her father was listed as Andrew a Commercial Traveller

Thanks Kay. Very unlikely. They stuck with the Scottish naming pattern.
Eleanors first daughter should be named Grace . Eleanor was named after her mothers mother.Her second son should be Alexander.There should be a Lilias in there too.
Good chance of a set of twins too. Those  names just don't fit.
