Hi

Yes usually means the child was born to a single woman but she might be see have had the same surname as her husband and she was mistaken as single by the registrar.

Just to clarify, when you say you looked up a birth record, was it actually a registration of a  birth, or was it parish record, like a baptism?

... and the year? Many records prior to 19th C seem to think it's detail if "Wife of..." is specified. When you say "looked up" is it online B M D , or a parish record, or....?
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

Do you mean that the record just says 'XXX daughter of John Smith' without mentioning the mother?

what sort of record is it?
a baptism  or a GRO birth registration?

What's the 1901 census entry, who is this child with then?

How I'm reading the OP's posts:
A birth record has no maiden name attached, yet younger siblings found via a census do.
I would think that possibly the first child was born out of wedlock and the other two within a marriage.  Have you checked for a marriage of the parents between the births?
