Hi Scott. Thanks for the update. I'm reasonably confident that your great grandfather, Frank Launcelot Hastings is my great uncle. My father (living) has often referred to his "Uncle Frank". He was a bit of a "black sheep" apparently.

searching on Wikitree reveals a cluster of Hastings at Hailsham, East Sussex. Continuing to investigate.

I can only find Maria Postlethwaite marrying Richard Warner -no Hastings

Possibly Horace was Horace Warner and when he left the country he left from Hastings and so tagged that as his surname - will see if I can find a marriage in UK

Thornhill, Cresswell, Sisson, Harriman, Cripps, Eyre, Walter, Marson, Battison, Holmes, Bailey, Hardman, Fairhurst Noon-mainly in Derbys/Notts-but also Northampton, Oxford, Leics, Lancs-England

So my current investigation shows a list of three possibles. Here's the previous information against which they'll be measured

Horace Warner Hastings, b1867, Brighton. father Richard Hastings, mother Maria Postlethwaite

then i'll list the pros and cons of each candidate.

Horace Hastings
b1868 Hailsham, (East) Sussex

pros:
correct surname
correct county
being christened 1868 may make sense if born 1867

cons:
no record of parents, will have to be retrieved from GRO $
wrong town in Sussex

Horace Charles Postlethwaite
b1866 Brighton father Benjamin Postlethwaite mother Harriott or Harriett West

pros:
Postlethwaite connection
correct town

cons:
then where did Hastings come from?
then where did Warner come from?
wrong parent names

Horace Warner
b1865 Brighton father Richard Warner mother Maria [no surname listed]

pros:
correct town
correct parent names

cons:
birth two years early
then where did Hastings come from?

Hastings, Postlewhaite, Trellaggan, Gregory, Curlis, Reilly, Fewster, de-Young, Rashley/Rashleigh, Basset, Cornfoot

as you can see it remains pretty confusing

On 8 July 1868 was born "Warner F.J. Plantagenet Hastings" in Dublin Ireland. 15th Earl of Huntingdon. coincidence?
