Can I confirm that the reason you think Samuel Marland was the father of Fanny Eyes’ two children is that their surnames are Marland in the 1901 census? Do you have any other documentation naming Samuel Marland as their father?

Do you have those children in any other census, and if so, are they Marland there as well?

Hi Ruskie when Mary Elizabeth Marland marries in 1907, she gives her father's name on the certificate as Samuel Marland, Musician, deceased. He is also a musician on the 1881 and 1891 censuses (then dies 1896).

I would suggest the relationship with Fanny EYES pre-dated the one with Margaret BATHER and
Edith's father was not Samuel.
Fanny simply registered Edith with the same surname a the sister Mary Elizabeth. It was probably the surname she was using herself.

Daughters of Fanny Eyes  Read the reply from PHENO and the GRO registers.
Mary Elizabeth was registered with the surname EYES
It was Edith who has the surname MARLAND
