The 1911 census has Anne and Charles married for 31 years, which puts the year at 1880, but I can find no such marriage on record, although there is a possible match in 1892. Comparing the 1881 and 1891 census returns, it seems certain that Anne was previously married to somebody called Loftin. The only match I could find for this was a marriage between Ann Dickery and Robert William Loftin in 1868 Lambeth. However, I can find no census record of this Robert. The number of children born/died is also a mystery with 5 of seven dead by 1911. Does this include the Loftin children? If so Robert at least seemed to still be alive at this time and there were five Loftin children and three Tappins, which adds up to 8. Edith appears as Loftin in 1881 and Tappin in 1891, I believe. Can also find no record for birth of Ellen Loftin. Notably in 1881, the Loftins and the Tappins all live at 60 Frederick St.

Ann Dickery (seems to be mis-written as Dickey on marriage certificate)'s father John Dickery was a Tailor according to marriage certificate.

The Reverend Josiah Pratt, signed Ann Dickery’s christening record, was mentioned in a totally different part of my family tree in the will of Peter Guillebaud.

Mother Po? according to birth record, possibly Portch which case Laurence had siblings David S born in 1928 and Roland G S born 1933. There was a recorded marriage of Charles H G Oliver to Harriet M S Portch in St Albans 1922 – these are most likely matches for his parents. Harriet, I believe, was born 1896 in Rotherhithe to George S and Harriet E. There is record of a Charles Henry G Oliver born in Camberwell district, but could not find in censuses definitely, record of death in 1957 St Albans. Possible baptism record on Ancestry of Charles Henry George to William Charles Oliver and Jane Elizabeth Oliver, and there is a marriage record 1888 Kensington with her maiden name being Bugden.
