By the time of the 1911 census, Edward George Roberts and his wife Florence Rabbetts had been married for 24 years and had had six children. Edward was a market gardener and Florence had been a dressmaker before her marriage.
It is interesting to note that of the six (first and middle) names they chose for their children, none were the names of their parents or siblings — as was common. Edward's parents were named George and Angelina; Florence's parents were George and Georgina, yet no "George" name was used for their children.
The couple were both born in Dorset and were married there (in Poole) in late 1886. A year later, their first child, Violet Elaine, was born in Poole. Given Edward's occupation as a gardener, it seems fitting that they gave her a floral name.
At some point within the next few years the family moved to Bournemouth, as their second child, Reginald Edward, was born there in 1890. He was followed in 1893 by Stella Muriel.
The couple opted for something a lot less mainstream for their fourth baby: Vola Snowflake was registered in the January-March quarter of 1895. It is quite possible that she was born in late December, or early January when the falling snow may have inspired her middle name. She is the second Vola to have been registered in England and Wales since 1838 (the first Vola was registered in 1889) and she was only one of nine from 1838 to 1920. I am no Latin scholar, but a quick search suggests that Vola is related to the Latin volo "to fly" — which gives a wonderfully evocative image of snowflakes blowing swiftly in the winter winds.
In 1900, the couple welcomed Victoria Ladysmith. The Second Boer War was in full swing, and many babies were being commemorative names. In this year, Victoria was at a notable high point of popularity, and the majority of these Victorias had a "Boer Battle" middle name. The Battle of Ladysmith took place in late 1899 and was one of the first notable conflicts of the war.
The last Roberts baby was another daughter, born in early 1903, named Pyrethrum Delphina. At least, I think it is Delphina; the birth index lists only "Pyrethrum D" and Edward's handwriting on the 1911 census is rather hard to decipher (see image above). We can definitely make out "Delph___" at least.
Pyrethrum is a type of daisy, and it would seem that — as with Violet — Edward's work as a gardener inspired her name choice. She is the only Pyrethrum to have been registered in England and Wales since 1838.
