6.
woman Clara Hellen "Nellie" Adam‏ Name given as Clara H in 1901 census but was listed as Hellen in 1911 census. As only 4 surviving children were given in 1911 census (John, James, Elspeth and Hellen) Clara H and Hellen must be the same person. By the same logic Nellie, who went on to marry and have 3 children must have been one of the two surviving girls. Nellie is a diminutive form of Helen so it is supposed this was a familiar name of the same person.
Born ‎1896 Doncaster, Yorkshire
Name given as Clara H in 1901 census but was listed as Hellen in 1911 census. As only 4 surviving children were given in 1911 census (John, James, Elspeth and Hellen) Clara H and Hellen must be the same person. This is confirmed by the BMD index where her birth is registered as Clara Hellen Adam.

By the same logic Nellie, who went on to marry and have 3 children must have been one of the two surviving girls. Nellie is a diminutive form of Helen so it is supposed this was a familiar name of the same person.
