Just to add: I think it would be very dangerous to make a leap back to the Henry Marsh baptised in Chichester in 1808.  At the moment there's no evidence (I think?) that that Henry even survived to the 1850s, let alone that he fathered your Joseph.  I can't see any obvious sign of him in the censuses. Even if he did live to adulthood, he may not have stayed in Chichester - I see that his likely brother George, baptised in Chichester in 1805 to parents William and Maria, was settled in London by (at the latest) 1825, when he and his wife Caroline baptised a daughter Emma in Holborn - with many more to follow in the same area.

Much better to do a real forensic exercise on Joseph and find out who he was and where he hailed from. Jan's kind offer to look up the marriage may yield vital information.

Jan,
 thanks for your very kind offer, yes please, can you capture all info from this marriage cert, (including and witnesses, occupation and address) and hopefully it may lead us further. I'm not sure about any other names at the moment, but think the advise given is good in that I should have as much info about Joseph before jumping to any conclusions. Thanks to everyones guidance, much appreciated and any further assistance is most welcome. Eddie

Yes I will post all information for the marriage. Do you want a picture of St Peter the Great (now a bar/restaurant)? I'll be walking past it so no problem.

Jan:   Having stuck my neck in a noose by suggesting the mother of Joseph MAY BE CHARLOTTE MARSH an unmarried mum, when you are in WSRO, could you also look up the marriage of Charlotte's 'other' son William Leonard Marsh in Westbourne near Chichester during the June quarter of 1864, just to see who his witnesses were.   I still feel it a possibility that these two may have been half brothers.

Yes will do that Roy. I looked them up in 1861 but Charlotte has no children with her only a male lodger and William is a bugler in the militia living with other buglers in Little London, Chichester. Charlotte is with her father Thomas in 41 no Maria. Thomas is with a wife Maria in 1851 but  she must be a second wife of the same name as there is a son of 23 James Blake. I can't them in 61.

Thanks Jan.  To narrow down the check out on that other marriage, of the two possible wives FreeBMD offers as partners of William Leonard Marsh, only Eliza Jane Arnold was from the Westbourne area.  She was living in Westbourne in 1861 giving a parish of birth of Bosham so I would think you more likely to find that marriage either in Westbourne itself or failing that, in a Bosham church during late March to June 1864.      Roy G
