Hi,
You,will notice the anomolies in his age. We,believe he lied about his age quite often as he was so young when he married. We know he was 60 when he died in 1929 in Plymouth so the 1868 is correct.
Devon,Cornwall and Somerset
West,Horne,Andrews,Melluish and Denniford

The age given at death is only as accurate as the knowledge of the informant.  So if he had always stated he was a year or different than he really was, then that is what will be recorded.
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

I think maybe he goes on to marry Lillie Stephens in 1898. Although father on marriage cert there is a joiner.   Certainly closer to bricklayer than "deceased fisherman" is!

Possibly that George is the son of George + Rebecca. They seem to be in Fulham in 1891 (piece 46 folio 91 page 34)
He was baptised 6 June 1866, St Nicholas Brighton, father George a Coach Maker.
