Seeking ROBINSON of Knaresborough, Yorkshire, England

Journal by Wende

Seeking information or descendants of:
William ROBINSON and Elizabeth Charlotte AMOS, who married in 1872 at Knaresborough, Yorkshire.
Children, all born Knaresborough:
William born 1873 - Gas Hill House
Charles born 1875 - Meadley's Square
Henry born 1876 - died 1877 - Meadley's Square
Matthew born 1878 - Meadley's Square
Adela born 18 April 1880 @ Meadleys Square

1881 Census - Meadley's Square, Knaresborough, Yorkshire:
William Robinson Head Marr 28 Sawyer (out of work) Knaresborough, Yks
Elizabeth Robinson Wife Marr 27 Knaresborough, Yks
William Robinson Son 8 Knaresborough, Yks
Charles Robinson Son 6 Knaresborough, Yks
Matthew Robinson Son 3 Knaresborough, Yks
Adelaide Robinson Dau 7 months Knaresborough, Yks

By 1891, William and Elizabeth disappear and their son William is a sailor living in Hull.
Charles is at the District Gordon Boys Home, Chobham, Surrey. Gordon Boys Home was for Homeless and Destitute Boys. Charles Robinson attended the school from 24 December 1890 until 5 Aug 1892 when he joined the 21 Welsh Regiment as a member of the band. His admission into the Gordons Boys Home was signed In Loco Parentis by George Busby. His admission form states that it was Not Known if his parents were alive, and he had one brother at sea. A Mary L Egerton signed the certificate and undertook to pay the sum of ?22 per year in advance for as long as he remained in the home.
Matthew is a servant at Plompton Hall, Plompton, Yorkshire.
Adela is now known as Adelaide and is living with the Smith family in Four Lane Ends, Killinghall, Yorkshire

Adelaide is my great grandmother.

I am seeking any descendants of William, Charles and Matthew.

Many thanks
Perth, West Aust
