Well, it ties in with your estimates of when Mary might have died. Problem is finding it!

I'm almost tempted to order the 1853 death cert of Mary Elizabeth Robinson just to check as the age matches but logic tells me it can't be her if she gave birth in May of 1854..... ???

I would not order that certificate in a hurry.  I had not noticed when I posted the information about the other child in 1854.  Sorry.

Well the plot thickens....... I decided to order the death certificate in 1853 and guess what.....its the right one for my Mary Robinson. She died 20th Jan 1853 at 5 King Street, Deptford aged 40 the wife of William Henry Robinson a costermonger from Typhus for 2 weeks. Everything matches what I know and the informant was Mary Elizabeth Robinson who I presume is their daughter who I have only seen recorded as Mary Ann before and just Mary afterwards.

So the question now is how do William & Mary go on to register the birth and baptism of another child in 1854, more than a year after she died!?!  ???

Do you think it's one big cover up by their daughter who is now calling herself Mary Elizabeth Robinson?

Mary Ann Robinson, the daughter, went onto marry a William Podbury in 1861 and in the 1871 census has a son recorded as living with her called Robert George Podbury born c.1856 and I'm now wondering if he's actually the Robert George Robinson born in 1854 supposedly to William & Mary Robinson.....

It sounds like it might be. They can be very naughty sometimes. There's no Robert George Podbury on FreeBMD.

Extraordinary that Rosie found the correct death certificate of someone that we all thought was alive a year later ;D

I think you are right and that R G Podbury is aka R G Robinson.
