Yes..that's them.
I checked out the addresses on the boy's birth certificates and they were both born in Clifton Buildings.
So I then looked through the census for Clifton Buildings and there they were.
I have been stuggling with that FOREVER...just goes to show...never give up...you will find them in the end!

According to the children's birth certificates, when both of the boys were born, the family address was 30 in 1889 and then 10 in 1892 ...Clifton Buildings Southwark

I put the details on the Surrey/Southwark board a few years ago.
I have looked under all variations I can think of
Rowland, Rowlands, Roland, Rolands, Rolland, Rollands, Rollins, Rollings, Rolling etc and maiden name of Emmett.
Then variations of first names...William, Will, W, Billy, Margaret, Maggie, M, and also misspellings.

William John ROWLAND b1860 St George, Southwark
Margaret Ellen ROWLAND b 1856 Clerkenwell
Margaret Helen ROWLAND b 1884 St Saviour, Southwark
Alice ROWLAND b 1881 Southwark
William ROWLAND b 1889 Southwark

In 1881Margaret nee Emmett is in Clerkenwell with her sisters Lucy and Ellen.
William is a bit more elusive..there are two that are the right age in the right place.
One b 1859 in Southwark, Living in Clerkenwell.......working as a Mason. At marriage he was a warehouse man....this made me think maybe it isn't him...
The other
William J, born Southwark 1860 , residing in Lambeth and working as a Fitters Labourer....living with his father....also William Rowland, born 1821 working as a general labourer..but he was described as a cook on the marriage cert of William Jr and Margaret, so I am more inclined to go with the one in
Clerkenwell...particularly as that is also where Margaret was.
I was planning to go through the census for 1891 to see if any roads are missing as a new line of attack.

I was wondering...did British citizens overseas at the time of census, get recorded if they were overseas say, in the army?
I am missing a family from the 1891 census and as I could not find them i wondered if they were all out of the country!
