Just to note that in the original image (below) of the registration for the previously mentioned birth that took place on 28 April 1884, the father William was recorded as a labourer and Eliza's former name was given as Johnston:

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

     William Hewitt and 2 daughters in the 1901 census. Susanna was born 4.3.1891 and her birth cert gives motherís name as Lizzie Chapman.
 
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Antrim/Court_Ward/North_Boundary_Street/946830/
 
I searched all the female Hewitt births in Belfast 1880 Ė 1889 but did not see Janeís (or any others to those parents). I also looked under the forename Jane only, in case the surname has been indexed incorrectly but again did not find one that fits. Possibly the birth wasnít registered. Her age in both censuses is fairly consistent, pointing to a birth around 1883/1884 (and in Belfast).
 
Janeís marriage certificate gives her fatherís name as William Hewitt so that tends to rule out her being illegitimate or by a different father.

Not necessarily, my gut says that there could be something unresolved about this.

Firstly, the 1884 Belfast street directory lists the following entry for Louden Street:

21. Johnston, Wm., tailor

Secondly, the Jane born at 21 Louden Street and the Susanna born at 88 North Boundary Street were both baptised in St. Stephen's Church for parents William and Elizabeth Hewitt.

I can live with the idea of a labourer subsequently being a tailor.  Or even doing a bit of both.  But if this is the correct person, then I don't understand the whole Hewitt-Johnston Johnston-Chapman thing.

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

This is a conundrum, RootsIreland also gives Lizzie Chapman as mother of Susanna. Elizabeth Hewitt, wife of William, tailor, died 25 March 1898, aged 45, address North Boundary St. Jane married Joseph Richmond, 22 April 1905.There is no trace of a marriage record for William Hewitt and Elizabeth Chapman, nor does there appear to be any birth record for Jane. Jane and Susanna were born about 7 years apart, Were there other children born during that period?
