Failure to register a birth only became a fineable offence in 1874/75 so many births went unregistered prior to then

The only problem I have been having Carole is just what surname he is going under in 1871/81 census?!

Also how an 18 year old Albert Edwards b Mardy becomes a Nephew in 1911?

Albert is in a few trees in Ancestry.  He dies in 1910.  Cannot see an exact date of birth given for him.

One tree says he was born in Presteyne - is that the same as Presteigne, as there is a birth for an Albert Edwards in December quarter 1866 there?

Added:
Other trees then claim that the Presteigne Albert married Susannah Mantle.

That 1901 census is clear about his birthplace - unless his parents mis-informed him.

I think through the wife of the householder, given she is from Hereford? But can't find a likely for her as an Edwards - or a marriage to fit

Hi that is the problem I have been having,  Presteigne is the Registration District for the Albert Edwards b Kington, Hereford is the Registration District for St Owen.

PS "Our" Albert states b c 1866 Hereford in 1891 census
