Bowker family Lookup in 1911 census
« on: Thursday 08 October 20 16:35 BST (UK) »
Try as I might I can't find this family.

I am looking for Richard Bowker with wife Elizabeth (nee Egerton) They married in 1901 and had children Martha Anne 1903, James 1904, Herbert 1905, Lena 1908 and Frank Percy 1914 in Fleetwood Lancashire.

Any help would be much appreciated

Sorry but Rootschat does not allow 1911 lookups

In 1901 Richard Bowker is visiting the Egerton family.  Shown as aged 40 and born Winsford (1860)

Elizabeth Egerton was 19 also b Winsford (1882)

Seemingly with only 1 Bowker/Egerton recorded marriage between 1880-1920 is this possibly another child.

Births Jun 1917

I think Both Elizabeth & Richard were younger than shown in 1901 - see 1939 register entry

Births June qtr 1865 - Richard Bowker - Northwich 8a 253 - mmn was Woodward

There is also a birth in same qtr in Shrewsbury - mmn Vaughan

George Bowker & Martha Woodward married 1862 Northwich & 1871 shows Richard b Over Cheshire

1881 Martha has remarried to Joseph Vickers - Richard again shown as b Over Cheshire
 
Still no luck finding them in 1911  ???
