This request has been posted before.
I don't think that the conclusion will have changed. You still need the marriage certificate.

The reason I picked this family is because there is a Reuben Adsley BROWN birth registered in the Hoo registration district 1870:

1871 Church St, High Halstow, Kent

Joseph BROWN head 27 ag lab b.Hoo Kent
Emily? wife 21 b.Cooling
Reuben son 8m b.High Halstow

RG10/901 folio 67 page 5
.......................

1881 Bill St, Frindsbury, Kent

Joseph BROWN head mar 34 ag lab b.Hoo
Emily wife 31 b.Frindsbury
Ruben son 10 b.High Halstow
Emily dau 5 b.Hoo

RG11/881 folio 13 page 19
............................

1891 Bell's Lane, Hoo

Emily BROWN wife mar 40 b.Cooling
Emily M A dau 15 b.Hoo
Martha dau 4 b.Hoo

RG12/655 folio 32 page 5
............................

1901 Fen Lane, North Ockenden, Essex

Robert BROWN head mar 52 ordinary ag lab b.Hoo St Werburgh Kent
Emily wife 50 b.Cooling Kent
Emily M dau 20 b.Hoo St Werburgh Kent
Martha dau 13 b.Hoo St Werburgh Kent

RG13/1658 folio 10 page 11
..........................

I couldn't find a son Thomas but wonder if Reuben could have changed his name to Thomas ie. Reuben appears in 1871 and 1881 but can't be found in 1891 or later whilst a Thomas BROWN age 20 born High Halstow appears as a lodger in Shorne, Kent 1891 RG12/651 folio 46 page 2.  Incidentally Thomas (it is ADSLEY) BROWN gives his age as 29 when he marries at Higham in December 1900 so would put his birth quite near to 1870.  I have checked for the baptism of Reuben in the High Halstow parish register and he is baptised as Reuben Adsley BROWN 1871.

I'm not entirely sure about this one but was the nearest I could come up with from the information available :-\

Hi Casalguidi,,

why on earth would someone change his name from Reuben into Thomas ?

census 1901 and 1911 show that Thomas was born about 1875 in Rochester, Kent.

I think this a unsolvable mystery.

Yes but Marriage has him born c 1870.

I think he really was born as Rueben Adsley Brown and maybe didnt like it and became Thomas.

Joseph Brown c 1844-1847 Hoo was the Son of WILLIAM EDWARD Brown and SARAH.
He was Bapt 4 Dec 1842 Saint Werburgh Hoo, Kent

GRO Birth reg;
BROWN, JOSEPH, Mothers mn ADDSLEY****
Reference: 1842  D Quarter in THE HOO UNION  Volume 05  Page 273

Brother JAMES 1839 Hoo has Mother as ADSLEY

1851 in Hoo we have;
Edward Brown   39**
Sarah Brown   35
James Brown   11
Joseph Brown   5
William Brown   4
Henry Brown   1

So Father used name William Edward/William and Edward
