The number is only of use to the GRO at Southport

One problem is that there are a large number of Civil Parishes within the Docking Registration District - 37.  Another is that by this time marriages are also taking place in Register Offices plus, of course, all the non-conformist churches. 

Very sorry if this all sounds very negative  :'(

The registration number is quite late in the listing so could be registry office or N/C

OOps sorry the website (that I've used in the past) is having problems at the moment.

1851 census Shouldham  transcribed as Buckenhame on ancestry

Mary Fingay 70 widow
Sarah Buckenhame 40 lodger
Thomas 7
Stephen 3

NFHS
Thomas Buckenham/Buckingham was baptized at Shouldham 15 March 1846, illegitimate son of Sarah.
No reported father mentioned
Stephen Buckenham was baptized 19 August 1852 of Sarah single woman

This may apply to her son Stephen Buckenham buried age 4 on 4 October 1852 although it may apply to the son of Richard and Elizabeth born 1847. More research needed.

Where does Robert come into this?

1861 census Shouldham
Mary  Sin Jay 86   (Fingay)
Sarah Buckingham 47 Lodger
Thomas 17

It would seem Stephen was ill and he was baptized August shortly before he died in October.

Robert always has Shouldham next to him on the census.

I was thinking the same as Stephen was ill and that's why he was baptised so close to his burial :(

Okay finally found Robert in 1841 census.
His age is pretty consistent throughout 4 in 1841, 14 in 1851 and 23 in 1861, so 1837/8

His brother Thomas was actually born 1844 registered Downham, although not baptized until 2 years later, and Stephen was registered 1848 and not baptized until 1852, both have no mothers maiden name listed so illegitimate as with baptism records.
Ref new GRO index.
