The birth certificate for John Morris Dickinson states that John was born on 1st September 1863. He was the son of Robert Laycock Dickinson and Elizabeth Morris.
 :o
It would be quite a coincidence if a Richard Laycock Dickinson married an Elizabeth Morris about the same time wouldn't it.
 :D
I look forward to receiving the marriage certificate in a week or so.
Richard (not Robert  ;D)

The marriage certificate says Richard Laycock Dickinson and the groom has (apparently) signed as R L Dickinson.
Everything we (i.e. I) know about RLD before and after the marriage fits. RLD was 47 at the time of the wedding, so his birth of 1813 fits. His father was John Dickinson decd. as expected.
Elizabeth was indeed the daughter of Billingsley Morris, a land surveyor. Billingsley and his son Pierce were among the witnesses.
Was it a mistake or was there some subterfuge here? Perhaps we'll never know, but this satisfied my curiosity.
