      Actual place from the 1911 census, actual date from the 1939 register.

      I'm not sure if Maud was the biological daughter of Henry as well as Edith. She is shown as his daughter in the 1911 census, not only in the relationship field, but also listed with the surname 'Stevens' and listed first amongst the children (sometimes step-children of the head of household were listed after his natural children).
      Clearly her mother and father or step-father had been married a little less than 9 years at the time of the census, but the 'completed years the present Marriage has lasted' was shown as 12, no doubt to make Maud appear legitimate.
      Although born Hounslow, it appears that Henry Stevens had moved to Sittingbourne c. 1891, and so would have been around to be the father of Maud.
      She was married as a Stevens, and when Henry died the newspaper recorded him as having seven daughters, which appears to include her.
      All sources seem to suggest that if she wasn't the biological child of Henry she was treated as one.

      In 1922 a Maud M Stevens married a Bertie Holness in Milton Reg Dist. Was this Maud Mary marrying as a Stevens rather than her birth name of Goatham? I believe it was. Whilst Stevens is a fairly common name, there were few Maud Ms and none that I can see born in Milton RD. But with a common surname maybe one had moved in from elsewhere? However, checking death entries it does appear to be this Maud. The only death of a Maud M Holness registered in Kent was in Q3 1968 and shows Maud was aged 68, i.e. born 1899 or 1900. It was in Chatham RD; had the Maud married to Bertie moved there (or was in hospital there?). It would appear so. Her husband being formally called Bertie can easily be identified almost certainly  in birth and death records. And he too died in Chatham RD.
      In summary, I believe we can be pretty confident that the Maud M Stevens who married Bertie was born about 1900, and so can be similary confident it was this Maud Mary.

      There appear to have been no children from the marriage. There were 2 Holness children born in Dartford RD in the 1920s where the mother's maiden name was Stevens, but there was another Holness = Stevens marriage in Dartford RD also in 1922. No other Holness children with mother's maiden name recorded as Stevens or Goatham who could be children of this marriage.
