I have found the following Martinson births from the East End (there are other births from Stepney, also East End, but where the mother's name is given it is different).

June 1907  Annie Martinson  Mile End 1c 433

Mar 1909  Amy Frances Martinson Mile End Old Town 1c 363

Dec 1911 Miriam Martinson Mother Purcell  St. Geo East 1c 521

Mar 1913 Rosa Martinson Mother Purcell Mile End 1c 750

I also show the family on the 1911 census

hi anonymous, I'm confident that Christine has identified the family in the census and the children's births (below are the record transcriptions from findmypast.co.uk for comparison).  Spelling variations can catch you out and I nearly missed the marriage for your greatgrandparents but here are the details...

There is no sign of Morris in the 1901 census so he may have entered the country 1901-1906 but Amelia appears in the 1901 census at home with parents and numerous siblings...
