He was baptised in Manchester (abode Collyhurst) on 9th February 1896 age 3 weeks which gives a better idea of his YOB

I have Fanny Greenwood's death certificate, which says she died on 17th January 1866 in Charlesworth, Derbyshire, age 73.  Widow of Henry Greenwood, Cotton Carder.  The Informant is Edward Fernly, the husband of Mary, the widow of Fanny's son Hiram, and also Mary Fernly, who also was called to sign an extra bit on the death certificate, which is hard to read and I think means that Fanny was originally named as Frances, and the official had to change it to Fanny, and the rectified mistake had to be signed.

That would give her year of birth as 1793.  I just assumed it was wrong, as these records often are.  It is definitely her, cross referenced with other family members, and that many of her later family and descendants moved to that area around Charlesworth, Derbyshire, from Manchester.

Unless Fanny was born in January this indicates she was born in 1792 as does the 1861 census where she is stated as age 68

Those ages in 1841 would fit with the Henry who died in 1847 aged 53 making him 46 in 1841 which would have been rounded down to 45. Fanny age 40 in 1841 could be age 40 to 44

Which child of henry’s Is your ancestor?

Sorry got my geography a bit wrong. I had quite a lot of trouble with Lancashire/Yorkshire in the todmorden area as parts of it were Lancashire  until between 1841 and 1851. I had confused Wadsworth and Walsden it being a while since I have done my research in that area.

I am just a little concerned you are following the right Henry for a couple of reasons.

It seems odd that Henry would have been baptised in Heptonstall if he lived in Hebden Brodge

You say they were living in Silk Street Manchester in 1841 and that record says they were both born in Lancashire (which could be Wadsworth but not Hebden Bridge)

How did you decide your Henry was from Hebden Bridge please
