Seeing his name in that long list of names could mean he was a juror.

This is a useful website for London crimes (1674-1913): https://www.oldbaileyonline.org/

Is this Amelia in 1881? Domestic servant (age 16) in the household of Thomas E Collcutt (architect).
Address is 36, Bloomsbury Square, St Giles in the Fields and St George Bloomsbury.

Question: Where is the Leonard family in 1871?

I've read the WH Barnes firm started in 1828? So perhaps a generation earlier than the elder William H Barnes in the 1891 census?

If he's the father of Rosa's twin boys it might explain why there's no marriage for him and Rosa.  :o
FYI: One of the addresses for the W.H. Barnes piano firm was Walworth.

Have we found Rosa Carter in the 1901 or 1911 census yet?

1921 census: He could be the William Henry Barnes (born 1873) living in Brighton.
Birthplace: Kennington. Occupation: pianoforte-related.

Looks like he might be with a family? Possibly a daughter (Dorothy) born in Camberwell in 1907.
Plus a Henrietta Barnes (born 1837 in Vauxhall). Also, an Edith Barnes (born 1880 in Norfolk).

Her paintings and exhibits are mentioned quite a lot in newspapers. Her first exhibit was in 1934.

See The East Kent Times and Mail (06 October 1937) for a nice overview of her work and travels.

The 1921 census also shows a daughter (age 4, born Ireland). Could the mother have married in Ireland?

Is this Rosa in the London, Kelly's Post Office Directory, 1916.
Listed under Artists (same occupation as in the 1921 census).

Carter Miss Rosa , 53 Marloes Road, Kens W

I'm a bit confused... Are there two men named Charles William Etridge?  ???

According to her 1848 baptism record, Ellen Amelia's father is a "cabinet maker".
The CWE who marries in 1856 is "Manager of the Pension Office, Trichinopoly".

Perhaps he had a change of career by 1856.
