john        1873
llewellin   1874
robert      1877
maria       1879
david        1884 mother obviously alive at this point
the children in the 1891 census are living with maternal grandparents and maternal uncle and aunt
2 at each , robert is not with anyone ,possibly in a kind of borstal .but we cannot find the whereabouts of the parents alive or dead
richard born 1844 to john and mary evans      jane born 1850  to robert and maria marchant ..

We have checked it out a few months ago but didn't think this was our Richard.
Will have another look at it though.
