This is a beauty!!

I think the two surnames are definatley Inglis and Fenner.  I looked on ancestry.com and magnified to 200% to get a better look, and I found the Fenner's in 1891 with clearer handwriting.

Even at 200% the first name looks like "aaster" but the second letter could be a "d", either way it doesn't make sense.  The only person anywhere near resembling this in 1891 is Alice J Inglis b 1834 Scotland, but I can't even at a stretch make the 1901 handwriting look like Alice.

Good luck, Colin

On the second specimen:

I don't see Maria, myself.
I was thinking "Aada" - perhaps the writer simply made a mistake in putting two a's at the beginning.

Another selection of his handwriting with A and C.  My first thought had been Clara but when I compared with other As and Cs I decided it must be A.  I also looked up on ancestry in 1891 and found Alcie but couldn't turn this into Alice.  I am happy with Inglis and Fenner so at least with surnames, age and place of birth  people should be able to find who they want.

Hi

Can we find her on another census date to see if the name is clearer eg 10 years before or after?

10 yrs after doesn't exist yet - this is  the 1901  ;) 
(from what I've read the next one may never be published- it's a real smelly relly)

Colin tried the 1891 and I had already tried that.  The only possibility was an Alice. 
thanks for looking at it anyway.  I reckon I'll submit it with the various suggestions
