You haven't given any indication of where they lived/married/places of birth etc.

Is this George and Sophia on 1851?

19 Robert Street, Hoxton
George Coleman 29 painter bn Norfolk
Sophia 26 bn Bunwell Norfolk
Ellen 4 bn Bunwell Norfolk

modified to add - guess this is NOT them, as this couple are still together in 1861/71
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Can't see a marriage in 1849 for George Coleman/Sophia Humans.

However there is a marriage of a George Coleman -

q4 1849, Aston
Vol 16 Page 409

On the same page is a Sophia Davis.

There is a birth for a Sarah Jane Coleman in 1854, Aston, which ties in with area of the above marriage.

If the marriage is correct it would be advisable to purchase the marriage cert to enable you to progress further as hopefully George's father's details will be recorded on the marriage cert.

Sophia Homans   31 b. Birmingham

Sorry Liz, I amended my post and then saw you'd posted the marriage.

Apologies.
