Sorry if I added to the confusion (which I did, I am sure).

Apparently Letitia had 3 children from her marriage to William Heighway in 1912..William Walter, Letitia and Geoffrey She also had another daughter called Mabel Isabela Jones (father unknown). I am assuming that she could have been born out of wedlock but cant understand why Jones? as Letitia's maiden name was Powell It is a possibility that Mabel could have been with Letitia in 1911. As I have no idea when she was born I really dont know but could someone please check the 1911 censuses for me to see if they can find Letitia with Mabel? Fingers crossed! Thanks in advance.

This is the only Mabel that looks possible really, area and year-wise.

Births Jun 1909
JONES Mabel Isabel Liverpool 8b 92

Still doesn't explain the Jones surname.

Sorry grangers Thank you to you too for your help!

I am even more confused now by the 1911 census. It doesnt seem to make sense..

1911. 21 Lloyd Street, Everton Liverpool
Letita Jones, head, 69, W, maternity nurse private houses, Carnarvon (town)
Letita, niece (visitor) 22, S, manager chip potaoes, Liverpool
Mabel, Grand child (guest) 2, Liverpool

Mabel was the daughter of Letitia Harris Powell so her grandmother would be Ann Catherine Jones. Maybe it should read great grandchild...and who is the niece Letitia?? She would be the grandaughter to Letitia Jones if she is Mabel's mother It gets more complicated by the minute!! :?
