It does seem strange that there is no Birth Registration on FreeBMD for William Edward RAWLINGS in the Axbridge District.

If his father was the William Henry RAWLINGS described on the 1851 census of Holborn as an Architect and Surveyor he was born in about 1807 in Shepton Mallet and he does have a couple of children born in Weston-super-Mare.

In 1861 the Architect is living in Portsea in Hampshire - on the census with the surname RAWLINGSON but no sign of William Edward.   You can trace William Henry back to his christening in Shepton Mallet in 1806 (as RAWLINS) and he seems to have had a chequered career but that doesn't help you with William Edward.

IMG0639\r\nName given is HAYMAN should be HYNAM. The correct version appears on right hand side in dedication.

Thank you very much for this information. I had obviously confused Walter\'s first wife with his second.

I am wondering if the connection might lie with Walter\'s second wife, Amelia Ellen (or Helen) Dade Hill, born at Stonehouse, Plymouth, who was a Salvation Officer (as was Walter, and his first wife Fanny, in Bath). Walter\'s first wife, Fanny Holtom (or Holton), died on 9 February 1920. Dollie is not reported to have attended the funeral but her other children did. Walter moved back to Weston and married Amelia on 11 October 1921 at the Sunnyside Primitive Methodist Church in Weston-super-Mare. Dollie would be 16 at this point (b:1 January 1905). Dollie is certainly writing letters from their restaurant in 1923. So, perhaps contacting the Salvation Army tracing service might be an option. It might also explain the link to Plymouth where Dollie died - the death certificate may provide some clues. Walter is buried with Amelia at Milton Road cemetery (thanks to this site!) and not at Bath with his first wife.
