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.

James and Sarah Broadhurst had a daughter Sarah Ann on 12 June 1847 (baptised Lambeth 12 Nov 1848).

Sarah and Sarah Ann are at Isabella St, Lambeth, in 1851 & 1861 - Sarah marked as a widow (50 b St Luke’s, per 1861, so looks a good match for the right Sarah). 

Her husband may have been the James Broadhurst who died Sep qtr 1847 Lambeth aged 39.

Thank you to everyone for your help and input. I have been searching all day and Henry Robert,or Robert still alludes me! I can't make up my mind who he is. There is a Robert Weaver born in Kent in 1788 (close to Canterbury) but I do thing that it is Henry Robert who is the right fit. I am starting to doubt the Huguneot narrative now. I nore that the french for Weaver is Tisserand and the Dutch is
Wever. Not sure where to go from here really, but I will keep at it and welcome any advice!

You need to trace him from when & where he is known to be alive (the baptisms) - try and find him alive in a census and/or buried with an age at death.

As I said before it is jumping the gun to try and alight upon a baptism without doing the documentary legwork on his life.

One to look at, albeit a slightly unexpected name:

Registered at Dr Williams’ Library, Redcross St, Cripplegate (i.e. nonconformist)

These are to certify that Robert Ham Weaver, son of Robert Ham Weaver & Elizabeth his wife, who was daughter of James & Elizabeth Cordell, was born in Booth St in the hamlet of Mile End New Town in the parish of St Dunstan Stepney [ ] in the county of Middlesex this 3rd day of June 1784, at whose birth we were present: Susannah Hill, midwife; Esther Cordell.

Practice makes perfect! I can't even find these names on ancestry! Robert Weaver, whomever he was, is still haunting me ha ha. I am so determined. I have a day out planned in Spitalfields on Wednesday, which would have been my Granddads 100th birthday. Was going to visit the Huguenot museum there but might be a bit of a fruitless visit given that I can;t find any links. Thank you so much again. Your insight and expertise have been extremely helpful!
