Thank you so much Sue. It could well be, we celebrated her birthdays on 27 Sept every year. (It could also explain the Barnado's situation.) I have also found a whole lot of Blundells (including a Maud) living at and in Houselands Road, Kent. In the 1891 census at number 20 Houselands road there is a George Blundell aged 49 born Tonbridge, with his wife Caroline aged 50, with a son and a daughter. No mention of Maud which is correct as she was only born in 1897. http://www.theweald.org/P2.asp?PId=TN.HL011020http://www.theweald.org/P2.asp?PId=TN.HL011020 Then in the 1901 census at 18 Houselands road (The neighbour) there is a Maud Blundell aged 3 living with a John R Russell and his wife and one daughter. Age all works wrt DOB. This is in Tonbridge Kent. I am in South Africa and not familiar with districts, distances etc Thanks Again!!
