    • Alice Maud Griffin's birth certificate records her father as Thomas Griffin, Mary Ann (nee) Franklin's husband at the time and it was Mary Ann that registered the birth. The family, however, are certain that Henry Ennever was her father.

      In the 1881 census Mary Ann Griffin (nee Franklin) is living with her husband, Thomas, in Bermondsey with their child, Thomas John b1880. They had married in 1875.

      No trace has yet been found of Thomas Griffin and Thomas junior in the 1891 census.

      In the 1891 census Henry Ennever is living with Mary Ann together with 6 children, Mary Ann being recorded as his wife. The children are:
      1. Florence aged 17 (born 1874 to Henry Ennever & Martha Bloomfield)
      2. Eleanor aged 15 (born 1875 to Henry Ennever & Martha Bloomfield)
      3. Lottie or Dottie aged 14 (Charlotte, born 1876/7 to Henry Ennever & Martha Bloomfield but no birth registration has been found)
      4. Alice aged 12 (born 1878/9 to Henry Ennever & Martha Bloomfield)
      5. George aged 10 (born 1880/1 to Henry Ennever & Martha Bloomfield)
      6. Martha aged 6 (believed to be Alice Maud “Griffin”)

      This particular Ennever family has a history of confusing family historians and census enumerators about their names. Henry's grandparents had criminal records and Henry himself is recorded as Thomas in the 1871 census either deliberately by his parents or as an error by the enumerator (see also 1901 census information below).

      Interestingly, Henry Ennever's father married an Elizabeth Mary Griffin, although no link has yet been established to Thomas.

      The 1901 census records Henry Ennever (Thomas has been deleted and Henry instated) and his wife, Mary and the following children:
      1. Francis (female, aged 27, assistant to father)
      2. Mary (aged 27, assistant to father)
      3. George (aged 20, assistant to father)
      4. “M” (female, aged 17, assistant to father)

      Francis is thought to Florence (see 1891) and Mary is probably Eleanor Emmeline, born 1875 while “M” is believed to be Alice Maud, also known as Martha. Florence was born Florence Harriet Bloomfield in March 1874, two months before Henry and Martha Bloomfield were married but no father's name or occupation are recorded on her birth certificate. The very short period between her birth and Henry and Martha's marriage is a clear indication that Henry was the father but, seemingly to add to the confusion, Florence is recorded as a boarder with the family in 1881!

      Alice Maud Griffin's marriage to Calvin Rumsey in 1904 then further confuses matters by recording her father as a Harry Griffin, a fishmonger (Thomas's surname and Henry's occupation) but on her 2nd marriage to Thomas Justice in 1928 her father is recorded as Henry Ennever, fishmonger.

      The following questions remain:
      1. was Henry the natural father of Alice Maud Griffin?
      2. what happened to Thomas Griffin and his son, also Thomas, after 1881?
      3. what happened to Florence Harriet Ennever/Bloomfield after 1901?
