The 1891 Census, has Charle's parents as Henry & Ellen, both born Somerset.

The 1881 & 1861 Census, has Henry born in Cullompton, Devon however the in the 1861 Census, his name is Robert Henry Towse and in both cases his parents are listed as Charles & Mary. This is the 1861 Census:

Name:Robert Hy Twose


Estimated birth year:1856


Father's name:Charles Twose

Mother's name:Mary Twose


Where born:Cullompton, Devon, England

Civil Parish:Wellington

Ecclesiastical parish:Bath and WellsTown:Wellington



Household Members:

Name Age
Charles Twose 39
Mary Twose 37
Jane Twose 9
Robert Hy Twose 5
Susan Twose 2

Robert Henry & Susan were both born in Devon, although I have not been able to trace any birth records. Sister, Jane was born in Wellington, Somerset and her Birth registration has the mother's maiden name as Loney. Indeed Charles Towse married Mary Loney, 1849 (Wellington 10/773 q December 1849).

Henry  wife Ellen and children can be found in 1901 living in Bristol. See link: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XS6M-ZNV  Henry is not sure where he was born and Ellen, place of birth is seemingly an unknown place in Devon. The children are Listed to be born in Bristol whereas most were born in Bedminster. The children's birth Registration records mother's maiden name as Rickard

Of note the marriage of Robert Henry Towse & Ellen Richards was registered in 1880, Wellington, Somerset. (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2DR8-YS8)
