Foolishly then tried searching him on FamilySearch, but of course won't find him on the 1911 Census as I'd hoped, he was born after it !.
However I HAVE now learnt that FamilySearch gives Death Records as recently as 2007, so much later than FreeBMD does, so I'm VERY glad I made that silly mistake !!.

In this case;

Name Clarence Henry Manns
Event Type Death Registration
Registration Quarter Jan-Feb-Mar
Registration Year 1990
Registration District Gloucester
County Gloucestershire
Event Place Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England
Birth Date (available after June quarter 1969) 23 Mar 1912
Volume 22

========================

Back to the name Queen or Queenie, was it Margaret's mother's name too ?
Searching a marriage for her Browning/Bayliss parents suggests not;

FreeBMD
Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Marriages Dec 1874 (>99%)
Bayliss Margaret Gloucester 6a 578
Browning Arthur Gloucester 6a 578
Huggins William Gloucester 6a 578
Noake Keturah Gloucester 6a 578

Now have the date so can check on GlosBMD, confirms the correct record for our family but still no Queenie..

Upton St Leonards;

The Domesday book listed 3 mills at Upton. Not abs certain but I think the one mentioned above, Upton Flour Mill, still exists on Bondend Road. It's now a Grade 2 listed residential property, with some of the original water-mill workings preserved behind glass, it's currently available to buy, looks lovely !.

It can be seen as Higgs Mill in the bottom R/H corner of this 1884 map, the Wagon Works is in the top L/H corner on the outskirts of Gloucester city.
