No it is 4 years according to the burial entry so born 1848.

I wonder if he was baptised 1852 age 4?

There is a birth registrarion in Jun 1848 Downham for a Stephen Buckingham - no mothers maiden name so I think that could be him.

And just to confuse matters there is another Stephen born same place in 1847 father Richard but he goes on to marry.

The Stephen that I have is baptised 19/8/1852 in All Saints, Shouldham, Norfolk with Mum, Sarah Buckenham... It has a FHL number 2262702 (but not sure on what or where i would find that lol)

Thanks I see when Robert married he named his father as Robert a farmer but as you say likely that was made up.

Did the other boys marry and name a father by any chance?

Looking into it, I was wondering if when Robert got married and he put down his father as Robert Buckingham, it was his step dad Robert Ketterington... He was married two years after his mum got married to the ketterington man.  Do you think maybe he stepped in as the father for the day and they just changed his surname lol
