I think you might have to accept that Alice is indeed the girl from Tipton- she was born at the right time and with the right dad! It is not unusual for enumerators to have copied something down wrongly when transferring the info to the main census sheet.

My great grandma was born in a different place on every census.

What does the marr cert say that her dad did for a living- not many coal miners on Marylebone LOL

Who were the witnesses on the first cert?

It would seem as if this is her birth

Births Dec 1878
Atwell Alice Maud M Dudley 6c page 60

Have you ever got that cert- to see what it names her dad as?

And who were the witnesses,as we should be trying to match them up with other family members.

I had found her in 1901,with Archibald and the kids.
Did she have more after 1901- again trying to see if any family names were carried forward to her kids.

It would be incredibly strange if there were another Alice May M At(t)well born c 1878 with an Edward as a dad- wouldn't it?

I'd bet my bottom dollar that she is the same girl.
