Thanks again Kloumann.  Interesting about Dennis Newman's birth registration.  I suspect the children's parents were not married in any of these cases.

Electoral registers have them living together as Dennis D and Jean A Newman in the 1950s (1953-1957), so I have assumed they were married.

The nearest I can see is March 1961 Surrey NE
Lee, Jean A - spouse Newman
Newman, Dennis P - spouse Newman or Lee
Norman, Jean A - spouse Newman

Suggesting that Jean had been living as Newman for a while. But, if them :-\, why is it Dennis P?

Her death was in January 1993, in Wandsworth
Jean Annie Newman
d-o-b 4 Sep 1924
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVZZ-XTL3

Free index to 1939 Register has
Jean A Newman (Dore, Canley, Lee), born 1924, living at 59 Balham Hill, Wandsworth
Roy Lee and 2 more people are on this record.

Marriages
Alec Caney + Jean A Lee, Dec 1942, Surrey N.E.
Frederick W G Dore + Jean A Lee/Jean A Caney, March 1948, Croydon   

Following that 1961 marriage it appears that two female Newman/Lee children were re-registered in the June qtr.
But these births, as per the originals in the mid 50's of course, were in Surrey North Eastern rather than Wandsworth.
Jean also had a daughter by Mr Dore (did one or two of these girls marry in Bucks?)

Thanks. I don't recognise any of the names but that does not mean, of course, that they aren't connected.

I found a Christine A Newman born 1953 Surrey North Eastern, mother's maiden name Newman, but that might be a red herring.
