      Found Tom DAVIS in 1911 census. There are now three daughters but Florence is no longer living with the family. Instead an Ellen DAVIS (b.Greenock, Scotland) is listed as Tom's wife and a record to say marriage has existed for "less than a year". Perhaps Florence has died.

      12/11
      Unable to locate "Tom DAVIS; bc1875 Southampton" in the 1911 census.

      The 1911 census (RG14PN30359 RD556 SD2 ED11 SN9999) has a "Thomas DAVIS; bc1869, Southampton" a travelling showman, in a boarding house in Jarrow on Tyne. The 1901 census has a similar "Thomas A DAVIS; bc1869 Southampton; Single; Uphoslterer" whilst at the same time "our" Tom is also recorded with wife and family. This would suggest the 1911 census record above is not relevant.

      1891 census (RG12 piece 915 folio 72 page 30), has "Tom DAVIS, bc1875; Southampton" living with family (father "George DAVIS, bc1831 Bognor, Sussex" mother "Mary A DAVIS; bc1835 Southampton" and siblings Frank, Nellie and Mary. This is the only 1891 census record for a "Thomas DAVIS" born Southampton between 1870-1882.

      1881 census (RG11 piece 1207 folio 38 page 12) has "Tom DAVIS, bc1875, Southampton" living with family as above, but with more older siblings. One of these is "Fred DAVIS; bc1865 Southampton" who is a "Rivet Lad, Boiler". (By 1901 "our" Tom DAVIS was a "Boiler Maker".
