    ; Esther is the daughter of one of Robert's sisters. She was married just prior to the census and her husband is not with her.
  • In the census taken on the night of 5th April 1891, Esther was the wife of the head of the household, an unknown person . The address was Stanford Street, Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. |Esther's husband is not at home. The 2 older girls were born before he married Esther, the youngest after.

The address was Steams Drifter Stores, Battery Green, Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. Married for 25 Years, they had had 3 children all still alive. On the strength of this I am assuming that Esther is the mother of the 2 oldest girls, born before they married.
