We are awaiting the 1921 census with baited breath.

We think that Lillian is actually Emily E Searle born Heyshott, Sussex, aged 11 months on the 1881 census, daughter of Oliver, a limeburner and Mary Ann. (the parish registers were stolen, so we don't know what she was baptised as)
This family is stil at Heyshott Street in 1891, with 6 younger siblings. Several were born in Graffham, so the family presumably moved out and back again.
By 1901 the family has moved to Bepton, with another 5 younger children. Emily is no longer there.

Reasoning for this is a photo of Oliver Searle junior in sailor's uniform - ties up with his records on Find My Past - addressed on the back to "Lily" This is on the assumption, of course, that she was his sister, rather than his girlfriend!

You probably already have this, but Emily E Searle who is 11 months on the 1881 census must be Emily Eliza Searle whose birth was registered Apr-Jun 1880 Midhurst district.

FamilySearch does actually have the baptism - Emily Eliza Serle baptised 11 Jul 1880 at Heyshott, parents Oliver and Maryann.

I'm trying to rule her out as the Emily Elizabeth Searle who married an Albert Gent Oct-Dec 1907 East Preston district, but the only likely Albert Gent I can see in 1911 so far has been married to an Alice for 6 years, and their marriage also comes up on FreeBMD. Also East Preston district.

How did you get that baptism, Kite? I can see three younger children baptised at Graffham, but I cannot get it to show anyone but the "other" Emily, dau of George.

Albert was a sailor. I assume he either died at sea or emigrated - can't see him after 1901.

Search for Emily Searle, father Oliver, location: country England, state or province Sussex, and it should be second in the list of results, after the 1881 census entry. If you add birthplace Heyshott it will be first in the list.
