As in my family, we had one person on the census, given
the same family surname by the enumerator -- yet the
young person was not family.
>From 1860 to about 1930, there were at least 100,000
children brought from England and vicinity -- we know
them as British Home Children. To date only about 25,000
have been found - I searched and completed a family of
seven -- for a neighbour.
Each child had a different surname, the surname of the
family with whom the child had been placed.
Have you thought of this possibility?

Very sorry! My only excuse is that I've been into everything you can
imagine today and was just looking at the 1901 before I posted my note.
