If you can quote a reference for one of those censuses, that would help people looking.


In terms of the birth reference for Thomas, is the maiden name from the birth certificate?

And checking maiden names - if you search on the GRO website (https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/) you can look for a birth ref and it quotes mother's maiden name.  You need to register, but it's free.
