Im trying to find the father of Lillie Daddow born in Illogan c.1871, her mother was Mary and 1891 census info gives their surnames as Daddow but as Mary the mother being a widow so im not sure if Daddow was Mary's maiden name or married name or if Lillie was baptised with another name, she did marry with the name Daddow though.
They were living in West Tolgus in 1891 census. Lillie was born in Illogan and her mother Mary is from St Agnes.
Any help appreciated.

I've had no luck I'm afraid. Searched FreeBMD, GRO Index and the Census from 1871 to 1901 but cannot find Lillie and/or Mary in any Census other than 1891 or any possible birth for Lillie under any spelling of the name.
The only thing I did find is the probable burial for Mary Daddow at Illogan:-
Mary Daddow of West Tolgus age 61 buried 24th March 1900
West Tolgus is where she and Lillie were living in 1891 so this is probably her even though her she appears slightly older than in the Census. I also did some checking on the marriage and it appears to have taken place in the Registry Office or possibly one of the Non-conformist Chapels. It certainly did not take place in any of the CofE Parishes within the Redruth Registration District.

Thanks for looking, i had pretty much exhausted my research on this one and my dad tells me that the name daddow does ring a bell but lillie (my great grandmother)’s family never really mentioned her family beyond being a scholar.

The only other option at the moment is one that may or may not help provide an answer. That would be to purchase the marriage certificate in the hope that Lillie might have correctly recorded the name of her father.
I did also try searching for Lillie in 1881 as 'Elizabeth' but it may also be worthwhile doing some investigation on other possible names that Lillie might have been used for. Just like Molly and Polly were used for Mary.
One site I just looked at suggests Lillie (var.) has been used as a nickname for EMILY. If Emily might be involved then you would also have to consider Amelia as a possibility and there may be several more.

Let's hope so - the witnesses might also be of some help provided they were not parish officials or registry staff.
You did not say who Lillie's husband was but have you checked later Census records for any relatives who might possibly have been in the household?
Did they stay in the UK or emigrate? If they emigrated then it is possible the country of destination might have records that could be useful. Many US states have informative death certificates as does Australia.

May be of note too, i have gone quite far back with the Schollar line and they are in written records Schollars but my dad will testify that they referred to themselves as Roscholar. Although my most recent birthday card from dad was addressed to Sarha so I will put that down to the Schollar selective spelling gene.
