The Smith family

Edith Constance Blanche  Vlieland married Edward Robert Smith .
We find them in the census of 1891
SMITH Edward R Head M M 27 Drapers Clerk(Em'ee) Norfolk - Morningthorpe
SMITH Edith C Wife M F 24 Gloucestershire - Prestbury Cheltenham
SMITH Jeayford Brothr S M 31 Dairyman Norfolk - Morningthorpe Forename Unclear
Page: 28/7 SMITH Ethel V Dau - F 3m Norfolk - Great Yarmouth
VLIELAND William H Fa-Law W M 52 Depending On Family Norfolk - Norwich Disability Serebritis
and so we know that William Heath Vlieland is then living with his daughters family.
We know that there are other children apart from Ethel from this marriage 
Ethel Vlieland Smith bapt.1891 St Nicolas Yarmouth Norfolk.
Jessica Florence Vlieland Smith Bapt,1894 St Nicolas Yarmouth Norfolk
Dorothea Constance Vlieland Smith Bapt 1896 St Nicolas Yarmouth Norfolk.
but we could not find nothing only the date of their birth.
Thanks to Curious Fox and Adrian Vieler we now can tell you that there was also a Douglas Vlieland Smith.
