Great! I will check it out. I wish I could find some sort of birth record or something for Robert directly. I am pretty new to this, but extremely keen to get to the bottom of it. Looks like I have a busy and fruitless afternoon ahead of me!  ;D

Trying to go straight from Henry’s baptism to Robert’s baptism is jumping the gun - you need to find out about Robert and Susan’s life together first in order to get a sense of where Robert was from and his likely birthdate.

1815: Birth of James (baptised in Bethnal Green, 26 Sep 1830)
1819: Birth of Susan (baptised in Stepney 28 Nov 1819)
1826: Birth of Henry (baptised in Stepney 17 Dec 1826)
1859: Marriage of Henry in Mile End - father Robert deceased by this date.
Ayr: Barnes, Wylie
Caithness: MacGregor
Essex: Eldred (Pebmarsh)
Gloucs: Timbrell (Winchcomb)
Hants: Stares (Wickham)
Lincs: Maw, Jackson (Epworth, Belton)
London: Pierce

Further possible marriages for this family:

James Weaver to Jane Moses, 27 Dec 1841 Stepney.  Father: Robert Weaver, carpenter* :(

Sarah Weaver to James Broadhurst, 17 May 1846 Lambeth.  Father: Robert Weaver, labourer.

Susan Weaver to James Pearce, 14 Apr 1850 Hammersmith.  Father: Robert Weaver, labourer.

*Not an obvious match on paternal occupation, clearly, but there is at least a similarity between James’ signature on this marriage record and that of “J Weaver” who witnessed Sarah’s marriage in 1846.
