Hello Bee

Thanks for your reply, how on earth did you find that!!!!
I do think that this is the Townsend family as they had a son born 1891 in Maidstone, Kent, possibly after the census.
Says that Ernest Henry occ. Back Clerk, must mean Bank Clerk, can't find Ernest in 1901 census, but do have Flora and two sons living Hertfordshire. In 1911 census Ernest occ is Commercial Traveller.

Thanks again

Just looked for Flora J and husband Ernest, no surname.

It would be interesting to see the actual census rather than a transcription

Have looked at the original page - the handwriting of enumerator is atrocious.

Ernest H Townsend has been transcribed on Ancestry as Frank H. Dusseau!!

Have just seen at the bottom of your reply to me, the verse Don't walk in front of me...............
I love these verses, I had them written in a card from a friend and have the verses above my computer.
