According to Alfred's death record he was born 2.12.1901. There is a school admission record showing an Alfred Hayden Foster with dob as 2.12.1902 with parent/guardian as Frances Alice. This Frances can be found with husband Isaac and son on 1911 census with siblings.

The following will need checking out but think the below is your William.

His parents marriage

Marriages Dec 1871   (>99%)
Baalham    Alice Eleanor        Mile End    1c   1275    
Beith    Sarah                Mile End    1c   1275   
Chapman    Arthur    Mile End    1c   1275   
SCOTT    Alfred Thomas        Mile End    1c   1275   
William was born

CHAPMAN, WILLIAM       mothers maiden name BEITH 
GRO Reference: 1884  D Quarter in POPLAR  Volume 01C  Page 696

His father Arthur dies aged 44 in 1888 Poplar

Sarah his mother re-marries Thomas Pamplin

Marriages Dec 1890   
Chapman    Sarah        Poplar    1c   1061    
Elliott    George Frederick        Poplar    1c   1061
Neale    Emma        Poplar    1c   1061    
Pamplin    Thomas        Poplar    1c   1061    

They appear on 1891/1901 census

 William then first marries Minnie Elizabeth Walsh 25.12.1910 -his father recorded as Arthur.

William and Minnie probably have 3 daughters 1911,1914,1919.

William then appears to marry Rose Patient in 1920.

As said in an earlier post his marriage cert to Rose should confirm his father's name. If it is Arthur his occupation was a carman at marriage in 1871 & the 1881 census.

I should have included the maiden name of Janet which was Macmillan. Well, I assume so from the info left by my grandfather"

If this is the family you seek and the 1901 census is correct then I think Janet's surname could be DEWAR as per the below baptism.


If you purchased a few credits from Scotlandspeople then one of the 2 below birth registrations should show Dugalds parents as John/Janet with her maiden name.
526/ 45

526/ 18

Whilst I can find no evidence in 1911 would it have been a possibility that as he would have been 16 by the time of census he was in the military.
