    1847 Edward was born in Peckham.
    1851 census,he's showing on his parents details, William and Louise Skilton, Camberwell
    No trace for 1861.
    1867 He marries Caroline Susan Miller in Peckham.
    1871. He is in Lambeth at 27 Carlisle Street, with his wife Caroline and son Walter (who dies soon after).
    He has a daughter born Deptford 1875.
    1881. Edward is a widower in Hughs Field, Deptford.
    1891. Still in Deptford at Prince Street with his sons Sydney and Ernest.
    1901. No trace
    1911. Now living with his son Sydney in New Cross.

    Where is he in 1861 and 1901?

    Can anyone trace him?
    Thank you

    Thanks for the 1861 census details. They are at the same address as they were in the 1851 census. (Couldn't find them in Ancestry).
    Any luck with the missing 1901?

    I've had a fairly good look Bernard, but I've drawn a blank I'm afraid.

    Me too, so far, but the 1899 London Electoral Register of Deptford shows Edward SKILTON living at 60 Rolt Street, which is the address given on son Sydney's marriage record.

    hmm I have found entries in 1901 for Rolt Street but only for numbers 100 to 152 nothing below 100 and no odd numbers. Wonder if there are some missing pages etc

    32-40 Rolt Street appears on one census page, that being RG13/529, folio 170, page 17, this one page being sandwiched between 32 and 40 Tareboro? Road. But no luck tracing no 60 Rolt Street or thereabouts.

    Have found 60 Rolt Street in 1901 (FMP have it transcribed as Rott Street) - RG13/524/49/27.

    Found it by searching for John William ROSS, who Edward Skilton appears to be paying rent to / or who is the Landlord in 1899 (from the Electoral Rolls on Ancestry).

    Edward is not enumerated as being there :(

    This is new information for me. Have been looking for Ernest as well, since his last sighting on the 1891 census. Found him y/day in 1911 as a Servant to two unmarried sisters in Brighton.;)
    Also unverified as yet, he may have enlisted in 23/8/1897 into the Royal Marines Light Infantry, Chatham Division. Service No 9634 but I don't have anyway to check this out though.

    I went looking for Edward yesterday but mistakenly entered, Ernest, who I found in 1901 as a ward attendant in military hospital.

    More interesting info. Does the 1901 have any additional information.
    He may have been transferred there from HMS Dukeof Wellington (see above postfrom Molly May) as it wasn't due to continue in service.

    I could not find Ernest on the 1939 reg, but there is a death reg for
    Ernest F Skilton age 36 Sept qtr 1918 Wandsworth 1d 662
    (He is Ernest Frank in 1911, and Ernest F in 1901 - but the age 36 is a bit out)

    On FMP, in 'British Royal Navy Seaman' set, there is an entry which fits Ernest Francis and a service number 344791 dob 23/2/1878 - there is an image of his service too.
