Thomas who didn't die until 1913 so there was a presumed separation or death 2 Rosina (Rose) BLAYNEY b.1868(6/7) [Thomas still married to Emily then] Listed with 1891 census as daughter of Thomas (then married to Sophia) [1268] Rose was born Rosina (named after her mother) Another Rosina BLAYNEY b.1877 (2nd q) (Hackney) confuses the picture. Her marriage certificate of m.16Aug1902 (Ilford, Romford, Essex) [to one Herbert William CROUCH (Railway Clerk)] states she was the daughter of Percival Blayney, rope maker, so we initially assummed that she could have been the child of Thomas and Rosine but adopted by Percival, a younger brother of Thomas and that Rosina came back to live with Thomas after Emily died. However she cannot be the 23 year old Rosina (daughter of Thomas) in the 1891 census of 1891 and still be the 4 year Rosina daughter of Percival in the 1881 census.[145] 2 Mary A BLAYNEY b.~1877 (24yr old waitress in 1901 Census) +(4)Sophia HARTMAN b.~1848(6) (Germany); (Widow); m.9Sep1888 (St Marks church, Bow) Dau. of William ARENDT (occ.
