Leicestershire Lookup Requests / Re: Help please i have got too many Pilchers

Similar to the above:-

From the marriage certificate for William, his father was Thomas, deceased.

Thomas Pilcher married Charlotte Shepperd Q1 1840 in Newington District

This is the family in 1851
16, Warwrick Street, Woolwich, Greenwich
Thomas Pitcher Head Married Male 41 1810 Journeyman Baker Rotherfield, Sussex
Charlotte Pitcher Wife Married Female 35 1816 - Kent
Thomas Pitcher Son - Male 7 1844 Scholar -
Ann Pitcher Daughter - Female 5 1846 Scholar Plumstead, Kent
Mary Pitcher Daughter - Female 2 1849 - Woolwich, Kent

I think William's wife died in 1892 and he then married Louisa Powell nee Rogers
Victoria Amelia Pilcher age 43 Q2 1893 Lambeth

Louisa Powell married William Thomas Pilcher Q2 1893 Islington District
Father was Herbert Deavers, Gentleman, on the marriage certificate.

1901 Census - 95, St Bernards Road, East Ham, West Ham,

The 1911 Census has the surname as Powell - 68 Lawrence Avenue Manor Park, East Ham
The children have mmn Rogers on the GRO


P.S. I forgot to mention that there is a tree on Ancestry with most of the information, including the certificate for William's marriage.
