Sorry about revealing the name, I wouldn't have named Mr X even if I knew who he was (which I don't).
The electoral registers are on findmypast. But I didn't see many references to that road. But did I look at all of it? Not sure. Anyway, the names are listed alphabetically, rather than by street.

Many thanks, I had no idea the electoral registers were there and available.

I've had a look at these, and none of the names popped out at me. However, I note with great interest a man called Edward Lovibond, who has qualifying property in Fisherton Street and Lewis' Court. His home address is 169 Greenwich Road, Greenwich. Hmm...

Clarissa's home address on the registration of birth of the second child born in Bournemouth was 105 Greenwich Road.

It's enough to get my nose twitching!

What I can tell you is that I have just found a newspaper article that shows that the man I think was the father of child number 4 knew Mr Lovibond. Coincidences? Perhaps.

I wonder if anyone has heard of Lewis' Court?

This is fascinating with or without the name of Mr X  :-X

You say "estranged husband" in 1911 - where was Clarissa? 

I see a family tree has another marriage for her in 1906 and more children but can't find.

Clarissa ran away to Hastings with another man somewhere around 1906, where they had three children, and kept a boarding house. They were both still married to their previous spouses, but lived as husband and wife. She can be found on the 1911 census as Clara Tompsett, who supposedly has four children with her "husband", although the children are nowhere to be seen on the census (quite probably deliberately).

Goodness  :o  I can find 3 and there is a possible 4th with the surname spelt slightly differently (Tomsett) but it's a different district and same quarter as one of the other births.

However if we bear in mind the previous baptisms anything is possible!  Mothers name is the same as the others but could of course be a different couple.

Is there an accurate date of birth for Clarissa Elizabeth Sutton please.
3rd Qtr 1871 Mile End Old Town 1c page 505.
Is that correct.
There appears to be a second marriage in Sussex on several online trees.
What about her date of death,promise will not reveal any names for any info I may unearth.

As regards Salisbury Lewis House, Fisherton Street,was probably one of the very many pubs or brothels in the city.Numbers given 118/122 are more or less under the railway bridge,left hand side coming from station,and long gone by 1939.There was a serious railway accident early 1900s when the London train came off the rails and engine hung over into the street at that very spot.

The child was born at 2 St Michael's Round, St Michael's Road, Bournemouth. I have had similar difficulties trying to identify this exact property, when looking at the 1891 and 1901 census data.

The mother returned to 2 St Michael's Round a year later in 1896 to give birth to another child.

Did you find 2, St. Michael's Round on the 1891 map?

Should deliver modern map of Purbeck Road (may need zoom (-) to display). Check 1890 and 1898 old maps to see development.
