Interesting.

I've just realised there's a very good reason Clara is not on the 1851 census. Her bap says she was born 31st March and the census was taken on.....

30th March lol

So, you would think her mother might already be at Oval Cottages where Cuthbert Anderson is a visitor on the census:

The other visitor is aged 48, so it would seem unlikely to be her. I wondered about Charlotte Garrett (or Angelina!)?

Yes I think I saw her birthdate some time back and I mentioned it and why not on census but I couldn't always open the links because it was the Australian Ancestry and couldn't be bothered to faff about to go back and check as to why I said it.

I don't think that William Cheek Bousfield thought a lot of the Selby Heles either. In his will, if at the time of his death, his niece Margaret Rebekah Clara Anderson was married to William Heles without his permission, then she would get nothing. So she waited until after he died!

Minnie Anderson is probably here (hopefully I have made the link readable)

Goodness, we did go round in circles! I never did solve the mystery of the parentage of Philip Cuthbert Anderson and how he might link to the Bousfield family!
