As with many census entries, a surname is often assumed to be the same as the Head of the Household - I spent many years searching for a wedding, where the twqo people were merely "living over the brush" as the person who finally cleared it all up for me said - they lived together and it was assumed she was his wife, whereas she wasn't at all.
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)

Perhaps one of the names was an alias. Re the birth that Rosie found for Charles Friend Parkin it seems a bit of a coincidence that his mmn was ... Schofield.

There is a very detailed tree on Ancestry for Charles Friend Parkin  which is well worth a look. He would appear to have married Mary Emma Wilford in 1919. Was he simply living with Margaret in 1939? (his wife is easy to find in 1939 - she married again in 1948).

Hi William,

Do you mean that Charles Friend PARKIN was the son of SCHOFIELD and he and Margaret assumed his mothers maiden name given his police record???

Many thanks

Thanks Rosie.

The last question is if Margaret hadn't been married to SCHOFIELD aka PARKIN when she married HOCKING why use the SCHOFIELD surname when she married HOCKING?

As William notes ....another mystery.

We don't know if Charles was married.  This is speculation....

He was born 1900 Hemsworth RD.
1922 he was possibly in the Doncaster area having stolen some bikes, other places were Wakefield,  Retford, Selby, Denaby, Edlington & Thorne.

Freebmd has a marriage in 1919 Doncaster reg district that could be him
Jun qtr 1919   
Parkin    Charles F   
Wilford    Mary E   
Doncaster    9c   2147
They had a daughter Clarice in 1925 who you can find on the 1939 register.

Mary E Parkin nee Wilford remarried Thomas Drake in 1948 though she appeared on electoral registers with him before WW2. 
Sep qtr 1948 
Drake    Thomas W   
Parkin    Mary E /    Wilford  Mary E   
Doncaster    2b   1029

Obviously the 1919 marriage would be needed to confirm it is Charles Friend Parkin but it would explain why he said he was married

Charles Friend Parkin was married at the time he was sent to prison in 1922.

The Sheffield Daily Telegraph 10 Aug 1922 states "... the prisoner was sent to prison for six months and on a charge of neglecting his wife and children he was sentenced to a further 14 days".

Clarice was in fact born in 1922,they also had a son Norman in 1919.

Hence the recent find of him being given a further 14 days in prison for neglecting his wife and children.
