Thanks every one for your helpful suggestions, I think I have a long job ahead of me, sadly I have no living relatives that can shed some light on things.

avm228 - the  three children that were on the census were 6, 4 and 1 years old so the missing children would have been quite close in age its also possible that there could have been a set of twins. Below is as much information as I have

Henry Tudor Robinson married Harriet Allison July 1903
The children were listed on the census in the following order:
Margaret Louisa daughter, b Marylebone - this name was scribbled out
Henry Herbert son 6, b Marylebone
Frederick Tudor son 4
Violet daughter 1, b Belgravia

At the time of the census the family were living in Peabody Buildings, Pimlico

Thanks again

Hi again,

Thank you for replying to my post.

Evie - 2 of the 3 were born in the same place and I have their baptism records.

Glen - yes trying to confirm their births and existance, like I said the census return clear states total children born alive 7, children still living 7, children who have died 0.

This is proving tricky as not only is the surname common (Robinson) but I don't know the first names of three of the missing children.

Any how back to the searching thank you again, I guess its just going to be a time consuming trawl through bmd and parish records.

I have a 1911 census record which shows that my great grandparents had 7 living children, at the time they had been married for 7 years, however only 3 have been fully entered onto the census record a fourth was crossed out. My question is this, does any one know how I can trace the 4 children which are missing from the census I only have the name of one of them with a rough date of birth?


thanks, I'm not sure if she had a middle name from the information I have found she may have had as her mother's middle name was Louise so it is possible that she was given the same middle name. I also know where she was born.


thanks suz

totally understand the identity theft thing and wouldn't want to upset anyone, I'm just trying work on my family tree, so fully respect rootschat policy, pm are the safest


Hi all,

I'm trying to trace my grandfather's siblings and any possible decendants to help further research my family tree, this is what I have so far:

Henry Herbert Robinson, c1905-1944 (WWII casualty), married Rose Jones they had 4 children that I know of.
Frederick Tudor Robinson, 1906-1976 (my grandfather).
Margaret Robinson, c1909-????, married George Ellis they had one daughter called Peggy who I believe had twins - Denise & Dennis
Violet Robinson, c1910-????

If you can help with any of the above I would be very grateful.

Thanks Wightlady

okay I have tried to send a message

Hi Muffin

Yes that information matches, and they only had two daughters my mother Pauline Lilian and her older sister Barbara. This may sound daft but how do I get to the message level that will enable us to contact each other?



Hi Muffin

I know this thread says completed but I would really like to get in contact with you as Frederick Tudor Robinson was my Grandfather, I have been researching my family tree for a few years now and this is the first time I have found some one who has also been searching for information about Frederick Tudor Robinson, please please message me
