Stratford Birth
« on: Thursday 07 September 17 12:41 BST (UK) »
I would really appreciate some advice/assistance. I have a marriage certificate for my grt grandfather Thomas Frederick Thompson marrying Laura Harrison Cunnington, on July 28th 1889 in Haggerston/Shoreditch. He is listed as being 24 and his father is John, a labourer. From this I have found census entries for him in Hackney 1891 (RG12; Piece: 194; Folio: 124; Page: 29), 1901 (RG13; Piece: 224; Folio: 153; Page: 38) and 1911(RG14; Piece: 1136) in which he states he was born in Stratford in 1865.

However, I cannot see a birth record that stands out to me as being him. I have a census entry for West Ham from 1871 that appears to be his family, but because Thompson is such a common name I would like to be more certain.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for posting the census details
There is also a birth reg that would fit James with mmn Foster in W Ham.  It looks like a second marriage for John & possibly Sophia  :-\

That does look like the same family. I can't find a marriage for them, I've also tried Thomas under the name of Foster, Forster and Thomson. If they are his family I think both parents died somewhere between the 1871 and 1881 census, as Henry b.1871 appears to be in the workhouse, James has a live in job and I cannot find the others.
