How do you verify birth date
« on: Wednesday 12 September 18 07:32 BST (UK) »
Hello,
         I am trying to ascertain if I have the correct person on my tree. I have a William Moore b.1857 d.1946 in ilkatshall st Andrew his grave is there and hs says he was 89. Looking at 1861 census I have him born at Hempnall yet future census say he was born winfarthing. Seems to be many Moore's born Hempnall in very small villages my only facts are his headstone and 2nd wife's grave next to his even having problem trying to ascertain 1st wife Eliza and her final resting place she was only 47 anybody with any ideas will be much appreciated I've spent too much time here, thanks

Do you have his marriage certificates as they should confirm his fathers name

If I've got the right William Moore in 1861 - RG9/1233 folio 43 page 9 - then his parents are Robert and Sarah.  Looking at the birth registration for brother David, registered 1860 in Depwade, then his mother's maiden name was Francis.  There is a marriage in Depwade District in December quarter 1855 between Robert Moore and Sarah Ann Francis.

Have you looked at the parish registers for baptisms of the children?

There is a baptism at Hempnall on 4 January 1857 for William, son of Robert and Sarah Ann Moore.

William's birth was registered in December quarter 1856 in Depwade District - Volume 4b, page 222.  Mother's maiden name is Francis.

To verify his date of birth - purchase the birth certificate.  You can currently obtain a pdf file for £6.00 from GRO website.  www.gro.gov.uk

If your William is the one who married Eliza, the marriage certificate would show his fatherís name.
Census information shows a couple of options so it is best to start with what you know and if William and Eliza are your ancestors, I would start there.

If he was born late 1856, he should only be 24 in 1881 not 25 as census would be taken before his birthday
