Thanks for this interesting research Jessica. The good thing about Wikitree is that this information is now preserved for all time. I am busy transferring my tree from Ancestry so I haven't got time to delve in to the research now but the data is all here for when I an get back to it.

Brilliant, there are some good leads there. We have thought of several searches we need to do now based on what you have supplied.

I found the Bourne family that Lilian Ethel Bourne belonged to in the 1891 census. They seem to have been fairly well off, as they had several servants. Same family in 1901... no trace of the daughter named Lilian Ethel. I checked for Lilian Ethel Bournes born in Woking, just in case she's a boarder somewhere or in a girl's school... no sign of her. Hmmm. See:

In GRO, there's only one Ethel (not Lilian) Ottoway, born 1887 but in Hollingbourn in Kent. I did find a Lilian Ethel BOURNE born in Guildford (Woking) in 1883, mother's maiden name Woolmer. I wonder if Lilian Ethel took the surname Ottoway for some reason? A stepfather's name?
