Looking at the face chips damage to the plate suggest brittle glace surface and durable strong course pot (ironstone ?) make up. 17th/18th century  ??? maybe by the picture of the mans attire.

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

Surely just because of his clothing that doesn’t make it that old? I have some Delft plates I bought in Delft in 1980, they have people in 17th century clothing, but I know the plates are modern.

The plate looks transfer printed so would be post 1750s
