Boardband back with bt now but will eventually need a new laptop.

Back to FH

Amy Ellen Scriven born 1879 Almondsbury Gloucestershire, parents Winchcomb and Elizabeth Scriven.
Amy married three times
In 1897 she married Edward Alway
In 1900 she married Daniel Mccoy
In 1907 she married Joseph Harrison

From the first marriage she had a daughter Edith b 1898
From her second another daughter Ellen Elizabeth b 1901
From her third four children.

Amy by 1900 was a widow living in Evesham where she married Daniel, on the marriage certificate the father's name is not written, but a sister is named as a witness. Also her daughter Edith remains living with her Grandparents back in Gloucestershire right up to 1911 at least.
When she marries Joseph father's name is present on the certificate also she takes her second daughter with her and the family move to Kent.

Would love to know why her father's name is not present and why she left her daughter behind. But was it legal to leave the name out?

yes quite legal to leave fathers name out. was the grooms fathers name given?

she had 2nd daughter ellen in 2nd quarter 1901 so she would be at least 6 months pregnant. she could simply have left edith at her parents for practical purposes eg due to being ill while pregnant etc. similarly the 1911 census is simply a snapshot of one night. she could have simply been visiting then. Often too much can be assumed from that one snippet of info. however I agree it does look like she might have lived with grandparents rather than her mother.
