Failiure to register a birth only became a fineable offence in 1874/75.  If there is no birth on freebmd then it was unregistered.  Presume you have already tried under Lewis just in case?

Why would they bother to have him baptised if don't register the death. Can't find any info on his parents if they got married or not. Edward Lewis. And Elizabeth Hughes. Edward was on Williams marriage certificate can't find any more. Thanks
