Note: Athalia is probably a miss - translation as Rupert was only married twice ?

Maybe Eliza was short for Elizabeth and this caused the confusion !

Note:- Ralph and John were the sons of Winnifred by her first marriage to John Cotton, perhaps the enumerator assumed Rupert's surname Caton it may also be that the sons were adopted, but I doubt it. Staffs BMD does not have anyone named Ralph Caton getting married in the area between 1900 and 1920 and only one John Caton. But does have Ralph and John Cotton.

Anything maybe so, only Marriage certificates would provide the correct answer !
