We are looking at Caroline Edith or Ida Williams born 23/10/1868.She was in service in Dartmouth on 1891 census. But in 1901 she is at Totnes workhouse with her 3 children : Beatrice Maud b 1895, Cyril Edwin b 1898 and Reginald b 1900. They are all Williams and seems she did not marry father(s). By 1911 she is still in workhouse although Beatrice has moved out to work in service.
My friend is curious about that period in her life as he has found and followed her back and forth and we know that by 1921 she was married.
Could she have lived there all that time ? I cannot find any records of entrants or discharges of that workhouse to pin her down.
Any advice or ideas welcome. Thanks
