thanks for the searches, I have two choices born in Monkton,
John son of John, b 1839
&
John son of Thomas, b 1838

I might not be able to find any more evidence but given the census records  for John I have, all estimate his birth in 1839, except one which suggest 1840, I tend towards John son of John, b 1839, rather than the 1838 option.

I know there can be variation in DOB worked out from census, especially if adult ages appear to be in multiples of 5, but his ages on census records are shown as :
1871 - 41 which is a mis-transcribed 31
1881 - 42
1891 - 52
1901 - 62
these are the census records when he was married and he died in 1910

this is probably the best conclusion I can make at this point. I need to make a note on my tree on how I reached this conclusion.
Do other people record how they came to certain conclusions ?
