Mystery Monday – Two Census Entries?

My husband’s grandfather is driving me mad. I thought I’d found him, and his wife Ellen, on the 1901 census.

Robert and Ellen Reuby - 1901

Robert and Ellen Reuby - 1901

Aged 28, born Southwark, wife Nellie – which is how she appears on many census entries. But by 1901 they already had their first daughter, Ellen. So where is she?

Some searching found another entry on the 1901 census, for a Robert Ruby (a common mis-spelling), wife Ellen, daughter of 4 months, also Ellen. This is for the Staines area of Middlesex.

Robert, Ellen and Ellen Reuby - 1901

This would seem to be the most likely – and I have come across another Robert Reuby who is apparently unrelated. So more for my to-do list.
