Eliza James is one of my wife's gmother. Her birth certificate states that her father was Robert JAMES , but her mother was Anne ROBERTS. I have been unable to find a marriage for her parents. However, the 1881 census says that Robert JAMES head married aged 39 Gardener born Northop
Eliza JAMES wife married aged 43 born Halkin

I have today received a birth certificate for Samuel JAMES born 16th Feb 1883 at the Workhouse, Holywell. Mother's name Anne JAMES, domestic servant of Halkin, father's name left blank

In the 1901 census,
Anne JAMES head single 36 no occupation Mostyn
Samuel JAMES brother single 18 Colliery labourer Holywell
Eliza JAMES sister 12 Walkden, LAN
Mary Elizabeth JAMES sister 2 Patricroft, LAN
living next door
Robert JAMES head married 30 coal miner Holywell
together with a wife and 2 children.

I am getting quite confused by the inter-relationship. Does anyone have any solutions or ideas
