Thanks T

I have just look at the 1911 census and the eldest child was born in 1889 in Bridgwater
Is it possible they never married?

A Caroline Bushen married Thomas Lee Duddridge in 1887 at Bridgewater.  Thomas Lee died in 1907 aged 38 years also in Bridgewater.

In the 1891 Census Thomas Lee Duddridge was living with a Mary b. abt 1861.  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:WPF3-TT2

Freebmb Marriages Jun 1887
Bushen     Caroline          Bridgwater     5c    629
Duddridge Thomas Lee           Bridgwater     5c    629

Freebmb Deaths Mar 1907
DUDDRIDGE     Thomas Lee     38     Bridgwater     5c    261
Thanks T

it is possible they never married as the only other marriage I found was for a Caroline Charles

Found caroline's death in 1937

"England and Wales Death Registration Index 1837-2007," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVHL-NSXQ : 4 September 2014), Caroline Hooper, 1937; from "England & Wales Deaths, 1837-2006," database, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : 2012); citing Death, Bridgwater, Somerset, England, General Register Office, Southport, England.

So she either married Charles or took his name without marrying
