Thanks Heywood!
garstonite, my Great-Grandmother was named Ellen Sankey and she married William Ryan in 1917. Sadly, she died a year later giving birth to my Grandfather. My Grandfather went to live in Liverpool with his Mum's side of the family.
MargP, do you know where that school was? The birth year is slightly off but I'd like to see what occupation the father of Henry and William had.
Sorry Westminster

No occupation given, it states the school was in Westmister

Wow MargP, those 2 sources of baptism and 1861 census look really interesting. Thank you!
I've also found who I think is the same Thomas in
1891 England Census
Thomas Ryan   53
Mary Ann Ryan   52
Thomas Ryan   25
living in St Pancras.

There's also a wedding bann for a Thomas Peter Ryan and a MaryAnn Foreman from 1861 in Hackney but he lists his occupation as a packer.

I'm trying to work out if it is indeed William's father as William put on army and census records that he was born in Bethnal Green - trying to work out where that came from!
