Notes for Walter KNIBBS:

We see Walter in 1881, living at 38 Mary St., London, Middlesex, England with his wife and three of his brothers:
Harry Knibbs Head Mar 27 Beer & Wine Seller St Georges E Middlesex EnglandBeer & Wine Seller
Walter Knibbs Brother UnM 25 Clerk St Georges E Middlesex
Eliza Knibbs Wife Mar 25 St Georges E Middlesex
Edwin Knibbs Brother UnM 21 Brass Finisher St Georges E Middlesex
Alfred Knibbs Brother UnM 19 Wheelwright St Georges E Middlesex
__________

When their son Walter was born in 1881, Walter and Eliza were living at 36 Storthport Street, Hoxton,London.
__________

Walter can be seen in the 1891 census living at the Royal Standard, 15 Little Guildford Street, Holborn, St George in the East, London, Middlesex:
Walter Knibbs UnM 36 Beer House Keeper Middlesex
Henry Knibbs Head 37 Inn House Manager Middlesex
Rosina Knibbs Wife 32 Peckham London
Rose Knibbs Dau 4 London ???
Louisa A Overton Neice 15 London Clerkenwell
Edwin Knibbs Nephew 6 London St Pancras

So presumable, Walter was living with his brother Henry and they were at the Royal Standard which was probably an Ale House. It my have been that Henry was the manager, and Walter was the Bar Keeper?

Walter's wife Lizzie was living at the home of Walter's father, Henry Theodore Knibbs in the Prince of Wales Beerhouse, 9 Little Coram Street, St George, London, Middlesex:
Henry Knibbs Head Widr 63 Beerseller Somersetshire
Sydney Knibbs Son M 26 Manager St George's East
Alice Knibbs Wife M 26 Middlesex
Alice Knibbs Dau 2 Bloomsbury, London
Grace Knibbs Dau 8 Bloomsbury, London
Lizzie Knibbs Wife M 56 Middlesex
Walter Knibbs Son 9 Middlesex
Alice M Dau 6 Bloomsbury, London
Eleanor Knibbs Dau 5 Bloomsbury, London
Frank G Knibbs Son 2 Bloomsbury, London
Herbert Knibbs Son 20 Homerton

Lizzie's age has been transcribed incorrectly as she would have been 36 and not 56.

In 1893, when their son Alfred was born, Walter and Eliza were living at 9 Little Corcus Street, Camden, St Pancras, London.
__________

In 1901 Walter can be seen at 48 North Street, Islington, London, Middlesex:

__________

We see Walter with four of his children in 1911, living at 496 Caledonian Road, Islington, London:
Walter Knibbs Head Widower 56 Foreman Cork Works born London, Commercial Road
Walter Knibbs Son Single 29 Collar Cutter Linen born London, Hoxton Road
Frank George Knibbs Son Single 22 Chauffeur born London, Bloomsbury
Jessie Knibbs Daughter Single 19 No Occupation born London
Alfred Knibbs Son 17 Single No Occupation born London, Bloomsbury

I can't be sure, but there was a Thomas Charles Knibbs, aged 13, living as a boarder at Hillcroft School, Mortimer, Berkshire at the time of the 1911 census, so I wonder if it was Walter's son.
