I'm not sure that it makes much difference but the Charles born 1845 was actually Charles EDWARD Somerville. The civil service evidence of age was signed and written by both parents in 1863, residing at Leamington.

It was signed by just Frances.

the will for the 1909 Charles is on FindMyPast

he is a Tobacconist. He spells his name Summerville and he has no second name.
he leaves all his personal estate to his partner - Robert Anderson
Except for £50 to Myrtle Roset, daughter of Albert & Elizabeth Roset of Narromine
To Mrs Annie Woolcott of Western(?) Port, State of Victoria 90 acres. And if she is dead, to be sold and equal shares given to her children.
 

AddedÖ I presume you have the death certificate for this man,

What does it say? All fields please

I wondered if Annie Woolcot could be Annie Maria born 1870

But you and others have her married to Thomas GALE
Why is that?   The marriage registry has her surname as GUILFORD
and the marriage of one of her children also has her maiden name as GUILFORD

Did she marry previously?  she would have been 20. So not much time for that.
or did Hannah leave Charles (or v.v.)  and take up with Mr Guilford?

I see Hannah's mother is said to be Elizabeth WOOLCOCK which is very similar to WOOLCOTT.   But if Annie Woolcott is somehow connected that way then it seems even more weird that he apparently leaves nothing to his own son and daughter. 

Hoping you come back on line soon to explain all this.
