George and Caroline had issue:

  1. Alice Hallandal,
    born 15 Dec 1870, Stepney, London, NOT 22 Dec,
    bapt 15 Jan 1871, St.Dunstan's church, Stepney High Street, Stepney, London (see map),
    alive in 1871 census,
    died young, pre-1876, there is another Alice.

  2. George Charles Edwin Hallandal,
    named after the two grandfathers,
    bapt 9 Feb 1873, St.Thomas, Stepney, London.
    See bapt entry. From here.
    He died pre-1881.

  3. Caroline Hallandal,
    Caroline Mary Hallandal, born 26 Nov 1874, 2 Bale St, Mile End [GRO.UK],
    bapt 20 Dec 1874, St.Dunstan's church, Stepney, London,
    alive in 1891 census, working as "Domestic servant", age only 16.

  4. Alice Hallandal,
    Alice Maud Hallandal, think NOT Alice Mary,
    born 26 Sept 1876, 22 Wellington Rd, Bromley [GRO.UK].
    The family story was that her parents died when she was young. She was brought up by strict maiden ladies, members of Plymouth Brethren. She couldn't wait to marry to escape them.
    Now it is true that her father died when she was young (1886), but her mother did not. Her mother was in fact still living when Alice got married.
    However we see in 1891 census (when she was 14) she is not living with her mother. She is listed in [UK census, 1891] as "adopted", living with the Jenkins family at 21 Mays Buildings, St. Martin's Lane, London (see map).
    The Jenkins family in 1891 consisted of Charlotte Jenkins, age 48, a cook, single (not widowed, Jenkins is her maiden name), with a daughter May Jenkins (must be illegitimate), age 19; and also Charlotte's sister May Jenkins, age 51, single, a domestic/kitchenmaid.

    At mar Alice is still living 21 Mays Buildings.
    She mar 29 Aug 1896 [her age 19, him age 34] to James Davis [born 1862] and had issue.
    They mar at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, London [GRO.UK].
