The 1911 census claims married 24 years so around 1887 but I can't see a marriage.

The 1911 says 7 children born 6 living 1 died.

This might be worth looking at

Marriage Mar 1896 Pancras
Rudolf Arthur Smith
Elizabeth Harriet Coker

Is it possible Elizabeth was married before? I see in 1911 they have a grandmother with them E Watts so Watts is definitely in there somewhere  scratch

Ooh found something interesting. Army pension record thing which says "married in the name of Rudolph Schmidt statutory declaration received"

Schmidt  Arrow Smith

That is interesting, Tourmie, I'm helping a friend and she said her father's line came from Germany.

Could you copy and paste it for me, do not subscribe to ancestry at present.

it would appear that rudolf might be the son of peter and Wilhelmina smith . they were both born in Germany.

they can be found on the 1871 and 1881 census with him in kent.

in 1891 Rudolf is with elizabeth in London but with no children. Rudolf says he was born Tunbridge wells rather than London. Elizabeth is born east Grinstead.

in the 1871 and 1881 census Rudolf has a brother patrick.  in 1891 he is married and residing in Tonbridge as patrick smith  . with them is Wilhelmina SCHMIDT (widowed)so they were obviously using both smith and Schmidt names.
