Do not believe Ada was previously married as she was born Ada Topping Thompson in Cockermouth Cumberland records say 1873 but 1881 census has her at 11 years old(census in UK often incorrect)
Elsie Cecile topping born West Bromwich Staffs 1895 although Ada did not marry John Trevenard until 1896 in Walsall Staffs
Cannot find them on 1901 although there is an Ada thompson b. Cockermouth about the correct age working as a housekeeper in Middlesex(did she divorce John)
The Elsie that may be of interest to you is Elsie Thirnad age 5 born Staffs living in Workington Cumberland
Checking the census there is no other entry with this surname on the whole of the census so it is obvious that this is spelt incorrectly.Could this be your Elsie living with relatives.To check this is chargable ,for a small fee ,for everyone else in household go to
www.1901census.nationalarchives.gov.uk
If abroad you can pay by credit card,you can also pay this way in UK or buy 5 voucher from nearest main library.
I would be interested in the outcome of your findings although i am not related just curious
