Thanks for the links. I found them last week but now I am looking for his parents.

I posted these for others to see- it just helps as others have said.

I can’t see anything in the records for Henry and Margaret   :-\

Hi I did post that in my 1st link.

I am looking for...
Birth certificates for Henry, Margaret, John Thomas and Joshua.
Marriage certificates for Henry and Margaret.

You won't get birth certificates for anyone born in the UK prior to mid 1837.

The GRO index and freebmd are the places to search for records after this time.  Not all births were registered in the early years

https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

I can't see a marriage for a Henry Granger to a Margaret before 1846

I agree with everything Rosie has found so far.

We can eliminate;
Joshua Grainger/Granger;
1844 one is still in England 1881 Census (Parents John/Mary nee Bark)
Same with 1845 one (Parents John/Susan) he married 1872 in England.
You can also count out the Staffs one, parents Daniel/Maria.

Both John Thomas’ and Joshua’s marriages show ‘consent given by parents’ but parents not named.
J T’s shows Henry Grainger and Margaret Grainger under the witness names.

Could that Margaret be Joshua’s wife?

Do you have documentation which shows the parents are Henry and Margaret?
