Have you looked at the next-door neighbour in the 1891 census: George Hollingsworth, 39, carman, born Thaxted?  Perhaps this is Charles' brother?

Thank you avm228, I guess I'll have to keep looking for his parents now then, seeing as that's what I was asking about in the first place. I think my wording may have been a bit confusing in the original post.

No, hadn't looked at that, but it's very likely to be a relative of some sort, there seem to be loads of Hollingsworth's in that area at the time

I suggest he is George Hollingsworth, mother's maiden name Ralph, birth reg Sep qtr 1851 Dunmow.

He's with his father William in Thaxted in 1871.

Cheers avm228, I'll keep on that track now, don't know why there had to be so many of them in the 1800's!!!

So in summary it looks to me as follows:

1. Your 1861 census find (Bardfield End Green, Thaxted) with parents William & Susan and children including Charles 12 and George 9 is the correct family.

2.  Susan's maiden name was either Rolph (per Charles' 1848 birth reg) or Ralph (per George 1851 & other children), but marriage not yet found.

3.  The 1851 birth of a Charles with mmn Collin/Collen is a red herring - different person.

4.  The 1939 death in Bromley is a red herring - different person again.

That's what I was just thinking. The fun now is to find Charles' death and his parents marriage just to round it all out. Thanks again for the help. I'd been going round in circles for days  ??? ???
