Born at sea??

Does the writing in green correspond with birthplace, Iím having trouble finding Edward Fetherí Birth, I have the year (abt:1891)and have checked gro but nothing seems to match so Iím hoping the green writing means he was born at sea.

The green writing is for occupation codes, see https://www.findmypast.co.uk/content/expert-1911-occupation-codes

It says born Essex doesn't it?

Have you got him in 1891/1901 to see what birthplace is given there?

Maybe Edward was a middle name  :-\

The birth of Margaret Louisa Fether was registered in West Ham June ľ  1884, mother's maiden name Farr. The birth of Henry Fether was registered in West Ham Dec  ľ  1891, mother's maiden name Farr. So it looks as though Edward Fether could have been registered as Henry.
Born Stratford Essex in 1891/1901.

He is 3 months old in 1891. 

The mother's maiden name for the John Fether in 1891 is Murphy

Confused now - are there two different mothers?  I can't see marriage for Edward to Catherine.

Catherine is born Alderney Channel Islands per 1891/1901 so maybe marriage was there? 

Catherine Murphy age 12 is with her family in Stepney in 1871 including Ellen age 4.
