Kate Trevail, daughter of Joseph Trevail and Jane Rundle, married Charles Archer at St Saviour'sSt George's SquarePimlico, London in 1884. 

Charles Archer, son of Charles Archer from Northamptonshire and Ellen Briggs, from Poole, Dorset, was born in Poole and baptised there at St Paul's Church, on 29 Dec 1861. He was living with his parents in Cambridge Street, Pimlico, in 1871, where his younger sisters were born in 1864, 1866 and 1868. In 1881, as a 19 year old clerk, Charles was lodging at 29, Myrtle Street, Hackney.

Charles and Kate had three children: 
  1. Charles Archer born 10 Jul 1885, bap. 10 Sep 1885 at St Saviour'sSt George's Square
  2. Ellen Florence Archer born 23 Sep 1887, bap. 6 Nov 1887 at St Saviour'sSt George's Square
  3. Eileen Elfrida Trevail Archer born 19 May 1897, bap. 18 Jul 1897 at St Gabriel's, Warwick Square
The birth of their second child was registered as Ellen Florence, but she was baptised Florence Ellen and later as an adult, mostly called Florence Ellen.

In 1891, we find Charles Archer (29) Collector, Kate Archer (33), Charles (5), Ellen F (3) and Lizzie Isch (20) General Domestic Servant, living in Chichester Street, Pimlico. (Kate's sister, Olivia and her family, had also lived in Chichester Street in 1891.) "Collector" (to disappoint all of us thinking of antiques and curios), in the context of Charles Archer's job, is a Gas Rate Collector, i.e. the bloke who goes round collecting the shillings from the gas meters.

In 1901, still at 8, Chichester Street, Pimlico, were Charles Archer (39) Gas Rate Collector, Kate (43), Charles (15) Mechanical engineer's apprentice, Ellen (13) and Eileen (3).

In 1911, once again at 8, Chichester Street, Pimlico, there were Charles Archer (49) Collector, Kate (53), Ellen Florence (23) Lady clerk, Eileen Elfrida (13) at School and Beatrice Matthews (28) General Domestic Servant.

Charles Archer died on 17 Jan 1936, aged 74, in Hale, Cheshire.

Kate Archer, as well as Charles Archer Jnr and his wife and Eileen and her husband, were all living in Hale, Cheshire (now Greater Manchester) in 1939. 

Kate Archer, of Girvan, Leicester Road, Hale, Cheshire, widow, died on 29 Jan 1947, aged 89, leaving £557 10s to her son Charles Archer.
